Another impressive season for the Warren County High School girls tennis team ended one win short of a District 6-AAA championship.For the second straight season, the Lady Pioneers fell in the finals of the district tournament. This year Rhea County played the role of spoiler as the Lady Eagles swept Warren County 4-0 Monday at Stone Memorial High School.Warren County (12-2) was on an 11-game winning streak going into Monday’s finals match. The team’s lone loss in the regular season came to Rhea County in March, but coach David Dunlap was hopeful the momentum his team had created with the winning streak would continue in the championship match.Instead, the Lady Eagles enjoyed another victory over the Lady Pioneers – in emphatic fashion.Playing a best-of-seven match, Rhea County won the first four singles matches to leave no doubt who would take home the district title.
