The Warren County High School volleyball team hasn’t lost much this season, but when the Lady Pioneers do fall, they get back up quickly.The Lady Pioneers avenged one of three losses this season by beating the Cumberland County Jets Tuesday night in straight sets, 25-9, 25-7 and 25-14.Warren County, which improved to 18-3 and a perfect 3-0 in District 6-AAA with the victory, had Tuesday’s home date circled on its calendar ever since losing to the Lady Jets in the White County tournament Aug. 24 in a match Warren County coach Franklin Fisher deemed a lackluster effort from his team.Dominating Cumberland County was the goal for the Lady Pioneers and coach Fisher thought the early-season loss was fresh on the minds of his team when Tuesday’s match began.“I think we wanted to prove to ourselves that the match we lost to them was not a true representation of our team,” said Fisher. “Our effort was much better and we maintained the momentum we built in the Choo Choo tournament over the weekend.”Warren County never gave the Lady Jets a glimmer of hope Tuesday as the Lady Pioneers won when the stakes were raised. Knowing their perfect District 6-AAA record was on the line, Warren County jumped on Cumberland County early and made sure the Lady Jets knew who the better team was in Charlie Dalton Gym.Warren County cruised in the opening two sets, never letting the Lady Jets crack double digits on the scoreboard.
