Lady Pioneers hammer Harris Middle
WCMS Lady Pioneer Rhealee Johnson, right, slides into home while teammate Shelby Roberts catches during practice. Johnson hit a home run in the Lady Pioneers home game Monday.

The high winds earlier this week might not be unexplained. Perhaps the high winds were caused by the Lady Pioneer bats as WCMS crushed Harris Middle 16-2 Monday night.
“We mashed like I expected us too,” said Warren County Middle School coach Marc Pyburn. “We have hitters 1 thru 9 who can do serious damage, and the girls we bring off the bench are equally dangerous. If we pitch well and field well, we should be difficult to beat. Our girls work hard and push each other. It is a highly competitive atmosphere and that’s just the way we like it.”
In the bottom of the third, Warren County was up 4-2, when the big bat of Rhaelee Johnson hit a home run to left center for a 230-foot shot. Prior to Johnson’s big hit, Halo Armstrong, Taylor Swan, Elia Atterson, designated hitter Kaydee Rains and Samantha Jennings all found their way around the bases, making the score 10-2 with no outs.
Lady Pioneers Sadie Simmons, Kadence Ledbetter, Mia Hobbs and Swan also found home as Warren County went through a full rotation before retiring after the third out.
Lady Pioneers Armstrong and Marcie Pope scored runs in the fourth to finish the game.
Pitching for Warren County was Sadie Simmons who only allowed 6 hits and 2 runs.
The Lady Pioneers next home game will be Tuesday, March 7, as they play host to Coffee County. Game time is 5 p.m.
