February 16, 2018 GMT

WAYNE — Wayne’s girls basketball team saw its winning streak reach 20 games and 14 different players found the scoring column as the Pioneers earned a 61-24 win over Mingo Central in high school girls basketball action on Wednesday night.

Maddie Wilcox was the lone double-figure scorer for the Pioneers, notching 10 points and 11 rebounds in limited time as Wayne (21-1) got an easy victory.

The Pioneers got it done on the defensive end to start the game, using the momentum of a Senior Night crowd to blank the visiting Miners in the first quarter en route to a 14-0 lead after one quarter.

That lead grew to 28-8 at the break as the Pioneers distanced themselves before freely substituting to get everyone some experience.
