scored 22 points and junior Cayden Ross added a career-best 13 points to help
the Allen County-Scottsville Patriots post a 63-30 win over South Warren in the
first game of the Nick Chaykowsky coaching era.
Rippy sank six of nine
shots---including four three-point baskets---to lead the AC-S offense Tuesday.
Rippy also was a perfect six-for-six at the free throw stripe. Ross went

floor, making 19 of 29 shots. The Patriots were eight of 11 from the field in
the second half. At the line in the game, AC-S went 17 of 23. The Patriots
outrebounded the Spartans 27-20.
