The Vinton County Lady Vikings (7-14, 5-7) have struggled to guard star players throughout the season, and it came back to bite them in their first round tournament matchup against the Warren Lady Warriors (13-7).
No. 8 Zane Trace had the upset within reach with a little over six minutes left in the sectional semifinals of the Chillicothe District in the OHSAA Division II Tournament, but the No. 1-seeded Athens squad had too much firepower, as they beat the Pioneers, 42-34.
The No. 1 seeded Athens Lady Bulldogs will take on the No. 8 seeded Zane Trace Lady Pioneers in the Division II sectional semifinal game on Wednesday at Logan High School. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:15 pm.
