Cookeville downs Lady Pioneers
Madison Hollis
Jeffery Simmons photo The play of freshman Madison Hollis was one bright spot in Tuesday's loss to Cookeville.

If the matchup with Cookeville was a measuring stick for the Lady Pioneers, then Warren County still has a lot of growing to do.

The Lady Cavaliers came to Charlie Dalton Gym and swept Warren County, winning 25-12, 25-11 and 25-14.

“Cookeville’s offense is a complete powerhouse,” said Warren County coach Katie Rogers. “We’re young and inexperienced with this type of play. We have four younger players who have never been put in a position to defend a team like Cookeville.”

The Lady Cavaliers were in control from the outset, pounding balls at the net and picking apart the defense with precision serves. The wipeout left Rogers to look for little things to show her team after the game.

“I was proud of the small victories – Samantha Jennings and Danika Reno were getting up quicker on blocks, Madison Hollis made some adjustments on defense to get into better passing position and Marah Wanamaker was swing the best she has all season,” said Rogers.
