WCHS looks to go 2-0 in district
Placeholder Image
With just eight games to prove your mettle, coach Malcolm Montgomery knows his Warren County High School boys basketball team can’t afford an off night in District 6-AAA play.Coach Montgomery has delivered the message to the Pioneers this week that tonight’s game against White County is another important contest if the team wishes to make noise.“You can’t waste games in district play,” said Montgomery. “You have eight games, which makes every game even more important. To start 2-0 in district would mean we’d have a shot.”The Pioneers are riding high after last Friday’s District 6-AAA opener at Charlie Dalton Gym ended with senior Nick Simmons connecting on a three-point play with 3.0 seconds to go to help Warren County win 46-45.Tonight’s game will be the Pioneers’ first road game of the district season and it comes against the team that has traditionally had its way with Warren County.Since Montgomery’s arrival at Warren County High School, which coincided with the Pioneers and Warriors entering into District 6-AAA, the Pioneers own only one win over White County.
