WCHS girls win 20th
Basketball teams head to DeKalb County on Thursday
WCHS girls
The WCHS Lady Pioneers have won 20 games this season.

The Shelbyville girls basketball team probably doesn’t like the sight of Warren County.

The Lady Pioneers beat Shelbyville for the third time this season, capturing a 48-32 road victory Tuesday night.

The win is the 20th of the season for Warren County, which improves to 20-5. It’s the first 20-win season for the Lady Pioneers since the 1998-99 season.

“As a program, 20 wins is certainly a milestone,” said Warren County coach Anthony Lippe. “If you can accomplish that, you’re doing something right. We’re happy for 20 wins and what that means, but we also want to be successful in the tournament. We put on our board at the start of the year 20-plus wins as a goal so we want to keep going.”

Warren County used balanced scoring with six players scoring at least 6 points. The win improves the Lady Pioneers to 5-2 in district play and keeps Shelbyville winless at 0-6.

The WCHS boys also won Tuesday night in Shelbyville, 64-53. Sawyer Seymour led the way with 18.

Both teams head to Smithville on Thursday night for matchups against DeKalb County.
