The WCMS Lady Pioneers advanced all the way to the sectional semifinals, but the balloon popped on their season of joy Wednesday night.

The Lady Pioneers ran into a Blackman team that was all business as Blackman won 53-17 at Stewarts Creek.

The win advances Blackman to the sectional finals and the loss ends the year for WCMS.

Aubrey Oleksik was the top scorer for the Lady Pioneers with 5 points.

Blackman was determined to get up and down the floor and WCMS didn’t have the foot speed to keep up.

WCMS was held scoreless in the opening quarter and was down 29-4 at the half against a high-powered Blackman squad. The Lady Pioneers were impressive in their opening-round win in the sectional tournament Monday night, but couldn’t replicate that effort Wednesday.

WCMS – Aubrey Oleksik 5, Alexis Ross 4, Abby Graves 3, Maci McBride 2, Haven Hasty 2, Brooke Kesey 1

BLACKMAN – Top Scorers – Mariah Okorie 11, Amarri Divens 9
