Keep the toilet paper at home tonight. The forecast calling for Charlie Dalton Gym to turn into a winter wonderland has changed.
Warren County High School has postponed Whiteout night, though tonight's basketball games against Cannon County will be played as scheduled.
In the past two years at home meetings with Cannon County, Pioneer fans have been asked to bring toilet paper to games for Whiteout night.
After the first made basket by the Warren County boys basketball team, fans cover the court with toilet paper. It is a tradition that has been featured at several colleges in Middle Tennessee.
Warren County High School athletic director Todd Willmore wants to continue the tradition in town, but a scheduling conflict caused the date to be changed.
“We will be looking for a home game in January where we can reschedule,” said Willmore. “This is something we must clear through the TSSAA and we'll do that once we find the right date.”
The Lady Pioneers will be looking for a big win tonight at home against the undefeated Lady Lions. The Warren County girls basketball team enters the game at 6-4, while Cannon County is a perfect 10-0.
Warren County won its last game 34-25 over Centennial behind 18 points from sophomore Bri Melton. Melton currently leads the Lady Pioneers in scoring with an average of 14.3 points per game. Senior post Megan Dishman, who missed the game against Centennial with an illness, will be back in the lineup tonight.
The Pioneers are hoping to bounce back from a loss Saturday to Centennial with a win over the 7-2 Lions. Warren County enters the game at 4-6 and had won its previous two games before falling in Nashville six days ago.
Senior shooting guard Kendall Rutledge will be looking to run his streak of double-digit scoring games to five games as he comes in averaging 16 points per game in the Pioneers’ last four outings. Senior Tucker Smith is coming off a 17-point performance against Centennial.
Action will start at 6 p.m. tonight. All elementary students who wear Pioneer apparel will be admitted for $1.
