Childs honored for 100th victory
Pioneer coach Adam Childs is presented with this specially made blue bat for his 100th win in Warren County prior to the baseball game on Saturday by senior class members.

Winning both sides of a doubleheader by shutout wasn’t the only highlight last week as the WCHS Pioneers downed Cumberland County twice. It was also head baseball coach Adam Childs’ 100th win as a Warren County Pioneer.
Before Saturday’s matchup with Stone Memorial, Childs was presented a blue bat as a remembrance to recognize his achievement.
“I was surprised by the recognition,” said Childs. “This has always been about the boys so I wasn’t expecting anything, but it was very nice they did that for me. My wife and the parents put this together and I was really touched they did that for me. It has been an honor to coach all the players I have had the first six years here and this is a reflection of all the hard work they have put in to make this program successful. Thanks to all the players, parents, family and coaches that have helped along the way. I could not have gotten to 100 wins without them.”
The 2017 senior class has contributed more wins to coach Childs’ total than any other class he has managed so it was fitting they presented the bat, specially made by BOMSS Wood Bat Company, to their coach.
Childs has had two 20-win seasons in his six years at Warren County High School, with this year’s 20-win regular season being the first for the Pioneers in over 24 years. In the past five years, Childs led the Pioneers to three regionals and one substate appearance.
When coach Childs took the reins of the Pioneers in 2012, the team had just 17 wins and 65 losses over the previous three-year time frame.
Currently, the Pioneers are in the tournament hunt having won their first game over Stone Memorial by run rule, 11-1, on Saturday.
In the classroom, the Pioneers boast a collective 3.57 GPA and players consistently receive acknowledgment for their character on and off the field.
