The WCHS Lady Pioneers were home Thursday night and hosted Coffee County in a district match. Coffee County won in three sets, dropping Warren County to 5-9 for the season. 

The varsity, JV and freshman teams all played. WCHS head coach Erin Blalock reviewed the matches of each team.  


Coach Blalock said Coffee County was a good team. “They placed the ball well and we couldn’t get to some of them,” said Blalock. “They are hard hitters that we struggled to get blocks up on. When we got aggressive on the net, we could take a little off of it and pass it back up. We didn’t pass well all night and I believe that kept us from keeping the game close.”


Coach Blalock was disappointed in the JV’s initial effort in the match. Blalock said, “The JV started the match with zero energy and intensity. Once they started acting like they wanted to play, they were able to score some points. Too many careless mistakes lost the game.”


Coach Blalock was impressed with the freshmen. Blalock said, “An injury in the first set rearranged the rotation a bit, but they played better last night than they have all year. The goal was to see improvement throughout the season, and we have certainly seen that.”


The Lady Pioneers will play at Lincoln County on Monday, host Covenant Academy at home on Tuesday, and go to Grundy County on Wednesday. Two of these matches are being made up from the team being shut down because of COVID-19.



Varsity lost 3-0 (15-25) (19-25) (12-25)

JV lost 2-0 (20-25) (22-25)

Freshman lost 2-1 (23-2) (25-23) (7-15)
