WCMS sweeps Irving College
Pioneers take down Tigers

The Warren County Middle School boys 5-6 grade basketball team remained unbeaten Monday as the Pioneers played host to the Irving College Tigers and sent them packing, 44-19.
All season long, the Pioneers have been spreading out the offense, and Monday was no exception as eight players posted points during the contest. Warren County’s Wesley Sherrell had an outstanding night, scoring a double-digit, 12-point game.
“We just didn’t have the firepower,” said Irving College coach Randy Bess. “We were outsized but played scrappy and with a lot of heart. We’re still learning and have a young team.”
Both teams had an excellent first quarter, with only 2 points separating them going into the second. That’s when the Pioneers went for broke outscoring the Tigers 20-6 leaving a 30-14 halftime score Irving College couldn’t overcome.
Also scoring for Warren County Middle School were Evan Watts with 8 points, Kaden Rutledge with 6, Sawyer Seymour, Grady Burnett, Jax King and Jason Jacobs, all scored 4 points, while Logan Earls was good for 2 points.
Adding points to the total for Irving College were Tanner Wannamaker with 6 points, Riley Wannamaker had 5, Cooper Bailey scored 4 points, Hunter Fults had 2, and Abram Stinson and Trace Taylor both scored 1 point apiece.
