Cavs blank Pioneers
WCHS Pioneer Wesley Jennings hits a pop fly Thursday against the Cavs in Cookeville.
Although they had runners on base, the Warren County Pioneers couldn’t push them across the plate Thursday night in Cookeville, and the Cavs took the ballgame, 6-0.“Cookeville played very well and we just couldn’t get the big hit when we needed to,” said WCHS coach Adam Childs. “Their pitcher did a good job limiting us when we had runners on base. I thought we had some good at-bats, but couldn’t break through.”As they were competing for a top-seed bye between Cookeville and Rhea County, the most likely scenario for the Pioneers is to finish third in the district, unless White County can pull off some tough wins against the Cavs to finish the season.In testament to their tough defense and pitching with Brooks Helton on the mound, the Pioneers contained much of the collateral damage Cookeville hoped to inflict.The Pioneers head into the postseason with two members of their pitching staff in the district top-five list including Helton and Noah Fann with 4 and 3 wins, respectively.
