Sherrell leads WCMS past Tigers
Its a fight for the rebound Tuesday night between Irving Colleges Riley Wanamaker, left, and Warren County Middle Schools J.J. Jacobs. The Pioneers won the game to stay unbeaten.

Wesley Sherrell wanted to put on a show at his old school.
A former Irving College student, Sherrell returned to Tiger country on Tuesday night as a member of the WCMS basketball team. Sherrell was at the top of his game, scoring 15 points, to help the Pioneers remain unbeaten with a 47-21 victory over Irving College in 5-6 grade basketball.
The win improves WCMS to 4-0, while Irving College falls to 2-3.
Tanner Wanamaker led Irving College in scoring with a game-high 17 points. He had his jump shot falling and he also added seven foul shots.
WCMS established control at the end of the first quarter thanks to a scoring burst from Sherrell, who scored 11 points in the first quarter alone. Sawyer Seymour, Kaden Rutledge, and Logan Earls added baskets for the Pioneers as they jumped out to a 17-3 lead.
Irving College played a scrappy game, but the Tigers could never cut the lead to single digits the rest of the way. In addition to Wanamaker, Hunter Fults scored 3 points and Abram Stinson added 1 point for Irving College.
Other scorers for WCMS were Jax King with 8, Earls with 6, Levi Melton and Rutledge with 4 points each, and Seymour, Braylon Grayson, J.J. Jacobs, Owen Clark, and Evan Watts with 2 points each.
