WCHS set to face Cleveland Saturday
WCHS head basketball coach Chris Sullens prays all the hard work the team has been exerting during the district tournament this week will pay off as the team travels to Cleveland on Saturday to play a region matchup.
Having won their first-round district tournament game, 55-53, over Rhea County and despite a 2-point loss to Cookeville, and 3-point loss to Stone Memorial, Warren County still has a chance at a title, albeit an uphill battle.The Pioneers have earned a shot at the District 5AAA champs, Cleveland’s Blue Raiders, in the regional tournament this Saturday.The contest won’t be a cake walk for the Pioneers, as the Blue Raiders were 14-1 in district play.“Most of this year’s team went to regionals last year so we know what to expect,” said Warren County coach Chris Sullens. “We will have to play our best basketball of the season Saturday night. Back-to-back regional trips have been rare in boys basketball the last two decades.
