The 2017-18 season was the fifth winning season and fourth sectional final appearance in a row for the program. The team finished the season 13-12 and ranked in the top 15. After defeating defending state champs Eastern Pekin 48-30 in the sectional semifinals, the team lost 47-44 to top-10 ranked Paoli. Season highlights include defeating N0. 7 Triton Central on its home court and beating Floyd Central for the fourth straight year. The team graduates five seniors: Hannah Wolford, one of the most decorated players in the program’s history with school records in points in a game, free throws, two-point field goals in a season and career, and most postseason victories — of any Pioneer basketball player, boy or girl — and second in points scored in a career among all players; Sierra Brooks, a four-year player who this season was first on the team in steals and third in scoring; Brinley Prather, who led the team in 3-point percentage; Alaina Banet, who was in her fourth year of play and started against New Albany and Floyd Central; and Bailey Brown, who was a contributor in her first season on the team.
