Lady Pioneers salvage a split
Placeholder Image
The Warren County High School girls basketball team hasn’t quite figured out how to start tournaments, but the Lady Pioneers know how to finish pretty well.Playing in the Wildcat Classic held at Hixson High School, Warren County lost its opening game to Loretto 41-38 Thursday night, but bounced back to beat the host school 34-23 Friday.The Wildcat Classic is the second tournament the Lady Pioneers have participated in over Christmas break. Warren County also played in the Sun Drop Romp tournament at Charlie Dalton Gym, where the Lady Pioneers started with a loss to Rhea County before winning their final three games.Warren County seemed to follow the same formula while playing right outside of Chattanooga over the weekend.Facing the Loretto Lady Mustangs, Warren County couldn’t overcome a slow start and foul trouble to win.The Lady Pioneers hit only one shot in the first quarter, a 3-pointer drained by sophomore Brittany Myers. Going 1-for-12 in the opening period was a problem as Warren County fell behind 10-3.The inside-outside combination of Bri Melton and Jessie Newby helped the Lady Pioneers begin their comeback in the second quarter.Newby started by pounding away at the Lady Mustang interior for two baskets.
