CCHS sweeps Warren County

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School basketball teams swept a pair of District 6AAA basketball games with Warren County Tuesday night.

The Jets defeated the Pioneers 70-55 to assure themselves, at least, a third-place finish in the district, while the Lady Jets beat Warren County 64-43 to tie for fourth place in the league.

CCHS 70, Warren County 55: The Jets trailed by as much as six points in the first quarter, but used a 9-0 run over the last 3:40 to take a 16-11 advantage, as they hit six of 17 shots from the field. Warren County was three of 11 with six turnovers.

The Jets led 18-11 early in the second quarter, but the Pioneers sliced the deficit to 21-19 midway through the stanza; however, the Jets stretched the lead back to eight points (27-19) with 1:49 left on three of four free throws.

The Pioneers finished the half with a 7-4 run to slice the lead to 31-26 at the break.

CCHS was three of 12 from the field and nine of 12 from the free throw line, while Warren County was seven of 17 from the field and zero for one from the charity stripe.

Qualls, Tayler Houston and Logan Parsons combined for 22 points, as the Jets outscored Warren County 26-16 in the third quarter for a 57-42 lead, with both teams tallying 13 points in the fourth quarter for the final margin of 70-55.

With the Jets’ win and White County’s 88-51 win over Cookeville, CCHS is third place in the district and will take a trip to the region tournament in Cleveland later this month.

White County is 6-1, followed Cookeville (4-2), CCHS (4-3), Warren County (2-5) and Coffee County (1-6). Friday’s games — White County at Coffee County and Cookeville at Warren County — and Monday’s game — CCHS at Cookeville — will determine the seeding for next week’s league tournament at White County.

Leading the Jets Tuesday night were Jon Elmore, Diego Poore (seven points, three rebounds, two assists, five steals), Bryan Young, Dylan Qualls (17 points, seven rebounds, two assists, three steals), J.J. Miller (two rebounds), Tanner Christopher (one rebound, one assist), Austin Brown (two rebounds), Alex Dixon (one assist), Tayler Houston (17 points, six rebounds, one steal), Cade Smith (four points, four rebounds), Blake McLauglin, Logan Parsons (23 points, rebounds, one steal), Cameron O’Rourke (four points, two rebounds, one steal) and Ty Tabor (one rebound).

CCHS 64, Warren County 43: The Lady Jets rallied from a seven-point, first-quarter deficit to post a 64-43 district victory Tuesday night over the Lady Pioneers.

Warren County hit three of four three-point baskets to take a 13-6 first-quarter lead, but the Lady Jets caught fire in the second quarter, outscoring WCHS 27-11 to take a 33-24 lead at the break.

The 27 second quarter points were the second most points the Lady Jets have scored in a quarter, since they scored 29 against Clarksville NW in a quarter of that game in December.

CCHS was nine of 14 from the field and six of 12 from the charity stripe with two turnovers, while Warren County was four of eight from the field with six turnovers. Alli Hyder had 10 points for the Lady Jets.

The tempo of the game slowed in the third quarter, as the Lady Jets outscored Warren County 11-9 for a 44-33 advantage. CCHS was four of 10 from the field with three turnovers, while holding Warren County to three of eight from the field.

CCHS hit eight of 10 free throws in the fourth quarter to double the score (20-10) for the final margin of 64-43. Gina Dick was six of six from the charity stripe, while Makenzie Iles was two for two.

Leading the Lady Jets were Makenzie Iles (11 points, three rebounds, one assist, four steals), Gina Dick (14 points, four rebounds, one steal), Alli Hyder (13 points, one rebound, one assist, two steals), Sloane VanWinkle (one point, one steal), Rebekah Teeple (five points, eight rebounds), Kassidy Sommer (12 points, six rebounds, two assists, three steals) and Courtney Smith (four points, five rebounds, one steal).

The Lady Jets are tied with Warren County for fourth in the district at 1-6, behind Cookeville (6-0), Coffee County (5-2) and White County (5-2). Friday’s games — White County at Coffee County and Cookeville at Warren County — and Monday’s game — CCHS at Cookeville — will affect the seeding for next week’s district tournament.

CCHS hosts Rhea County Saturday night for senior night.
