Zane Trace's Gabe Haynes, Kirk Maxwell and Rick
Chamberlain combined for 37 points in a 39-28 win over the
Unioto Shermans on Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Night at
Unioto.

The win draws the Pioneers to within one-half game of
front-running Piketon and Westfall. ZT improved to 10-4
overall and 8-3 in the Scioto Valley Conference.

The Pioneers won each quarter in this low-scoring affair --
10-7, 9-8, 10-5 and 10-8.

Junior swing-man Haynes finished with 14 points after
jump-starting Trace with a pair of three-pointers early. Senior
forward Maxwell added 13 and junior pivot Chamberlin
scored 10 for the winners.

For Unioto (1-12,  1-10 SVC), junior forward Quentin
Detillion recorded a double-double with 14 points and 10
rebounds.

The Tanks' Alex Kimsey finished with eight rebounds, five
blocks and four points, sitting out most of the first half with two
personal fouls.

Prior to the varsity game, the Unioto Athletic Hall of Fame
grew to 36 members with the induction of retired boys
basketball coach Ron Lovely, standout athlete Debbie
Brumfield and retired athletic director and UHS teacher Alex
Mace.

Unioto will make up its home game with Greenfield McClain
Monday night before traveling to Circleville on Tuesday night,
taking on the Tigers at the Court Street gym.

The Pioneers resume conference play Friday, hosting Paint
Valley.
ZANE TRACE CREEPS CLOSER TO TOP
Pioneers handle Shermans, 39-28
Mace, Brumfield, & Lovely
enter HOF at Unioto
The Unioto Hall of Fame welcomed
three new members Saturday night. The
trio of Alex Mace, Debbie Brumfield,
and Ron Lovely became the 34th, 35th,
and 36th former Tanks to earn a spot in
the Hall.

First, Mace has done it all for Unioto in
the past four decades. As a teacher, a
coach, an athletic director, and now a
volunteer, "Mr. Unioto" has given
endless hours to the past and present
Unioto student-athletes.

Next, Brumfield graduated from Unioto
in 1980. She was a volleyball,
basketball, and track star that played on
some of the best Unioto volleyball and
basketball teams of all time while
advancing to the state individually in
track.

Finally, Lovely enters the hall as one of
the best coaches in school history. His
335 career wins, four SVC titles, eight
sectional titles, three district runner-ups,
one district title, and one regional
championship tell the success of Lovely.

As a former player, it was a special night
seeing Coach go into the Hall. He was a
great role model for future coaches. I
remember him always giving us (players)
the credit when we won and taking the
blame when we lost. It is a true honor to
say congrats to Coach Lovely as well as
Mr. Mace and Debbie on entering the
Hall.
