Senior success
Pioneers tame Tigers
WCHS Pioneer senior McCall Turner brings the ball up court as the Pioneers defeated DeKalb County on senior night. All the senior ball players were honored during the break, being given trophy basketballs.
In a senior night success story, the WCHS Pioneers pulled away from their visiting opponents from Smithville in the second quarter and never looked back, delighting the home crowd with another win at the Dalt, 62-44.After all the team’s seniors were honored in front of a packed crowd, the Pioneers went back to business and led the first half 28-21 after a better shot percentage from the floor combined with sharp shooter Chance Hobbs’ three treys in the first half being too much for the Tigers.Despite a rally by the Tigers in the third quarter, the Pioneers finished strong down the stretch outscoring DeKalb 19-6 in the final eight minutes.“I’m very proud of our seniors,” said Warren County Pioneer head coach Chris Sullens. “This makes 30 wins in two years. It might not sound like much, but we only won seven games the first year.
