Last season, the Lady Pioneer soccer team made a step toward returning to the dominant program which was at Warren County High School in the mid 2000s. The Lady Pioneers won 12 games, finished second in District 6-AAA and went to the regionals for the first time in six years.Coach Todd Willmore is hopeful a team which returns five all-district players and a number of other solid contributors can take another step toward bringing back district championships to Warren County.“Obviously, we’re trying to build upon what we did last year,” said Willmore. “Our schedule is much stronger this season with the hopes that facing tough competition throughout the year will prepare us for tough games when the district and regional tournaments come up.”The Lady Pioneers added Region 3-A rivals Soddy Daisy and Ooltewah to the schedule, along with the always tough Blackman Lady Blaze.
