The Pioneers notched their first victory in their third game of the season on Dec. 3 over the Stockbridge Indians, 89-41, at Sevastopol.

In the two-day Kohler Tournament on Dec. 11 & 12, the Pioneers found redemption after a 45-65 loss to Kohler on day one of the tournament by beating Johnson Creek, 73-50, the following day. The Pioneers finished the tournament at 1-1.

The Pioneers came off of their holiday break by beating the Northeast Wisconsin Christian Homeschool team, 70-50, in front of their home crowd on Jan. 4.

With nine regular season games left to play before the WIAA tournament begins, the Pioneers look to score a few more victories in hopes of making a run in the playoffs. Head Coach Andy Symons will continue to push his team in hopes of a strong finish in the regular season.


The Lady Pioneers also reached the midway point of their regular season. Currently, their overall regular season record stands at 3-8 (0-8 Conference). At this point last season, the Pioneers record also stood at 3-8 overall.
