The Warren County High School softball team likes the sight of powder blue.After starting the season 1-11, the Lady Pioneers have picked up two victories in their last three games. Both have come against the Cumberland County Lady Jets, including Monday’s 5-0 shutout victory for the Lady Pioneers.Warren County (3-12) evened its record in District 6-AAA to 2-2 with its latest win, one highlighted by the play of the team’s oldest player and one of its youngest.Senior Monica Lane had another impressive outing against the ladies in powder blue from Crossville. Lane pitched a complete-game shutout, allowing only four hits to the Lady Jets.The Lady Pioneer offense didn’t have its best outing, but it only took one inning of scoring - featuring a huge hit from freshman Livia Walker - to get the win.The game went into the fourth inning scoreless as the only base runners were three Cumberland County players who reached on early singles.Freshman Lindsey Cox finally got Warren County on the base paths by drawing a lead-off walk to start the fourth inning, igniting a rally in the process.Samantha Weeter sacrificed Cox into scoring position with a bunt, then Lane helped her cause with an RBI single to put the Lady Pioneers ahead 1-0.With one swing, Walker quickly made it a three-run lead.
