Senior Nick Stern said it best last week when the Pioneer golf team won the Keith Maxwell Invitational. Stern said, “It’s always a good day when you beat Cookeville.”
Monday was another good day for Warren County golf.
Both the Pioneers and Lady Pioneers came out on top in a District 6-AAA matchup against Cookeville held Monday at McMinnville Country Club. The Pioneers won 320-325, while the Lady Pioneers beat the Lady Cavaliers 152-174.
Stern and the boys golf team staked their claim for favorite status in the District 6-AAA tournament by beating Cookeville for the third time this season. Warren County also finished ahead of the Cavaliers in last week’s Keith Maxwell tournament and topped Cookeville on its own course in the Cookeville Early Bird tournament.
Senior Nicholas Powell was the top performer the Pioneers with a round of 77. Stern used a string of three straight birdies on holes 5-7 to shoot 78, the same score sophomore Bracton Womack turned in during Monday’s round. Freshman Jaeden Pyburn rounded out the Warren County team score by shooting 87.
Cookeville was led by Robert Agee’s 76, the best boys score of the day.
While the boys score was a tight race, the Lady Pioneers had no trouble dispatching the Lady Cavaliers.
The reigning District 6-AAA champions turned in the three best rounds on their home course, though only two applied to final team score for the Lady Pioneers.
Sophomore Hannah Powell and junior Saylem Powell each shot 76 while senior Brittany Myers came in at 77. Cookeville’s top scorer was Sierra Ramsey at 86.
The match was the final tune-up before the District 6-AAA golf tournament.
Both Warren County teams will be in Cookeville Monday, Sept. 15 to take part in the district tournament held at Cookeville Golf Course.
