Lady Pioneers take Tullahoma tourney
Placeholder Image

All the pieces were in place for the Warren County High School girls golf team to be a team to beat this season, but even coach J.W. Holt must have been surprised for the Lady Pioneers to put everything together so soon.
The Lady Pioneers won the Tullahoma Invitational Thursday in the first event Warren County played to start the 2012 season.
Led by sophomore Brittany Myers and senior Katelyn Davenport, the Lady Pioneers finished with the lowest score among the six teams which took part in the Tullahoma Invitational at Lakewood Country Club.
Along with being part of the winning team, Myers was the first medalist individually as her round of 79 was the lowest shot by any female in the tournament.
Davenport finished fourth individually, firing an 84 to contribute to the Lady Pioneers’ team score of 163.
Freshman Saylem Powell was the third Lady Pioneer to play, but her 18-hole round of 90 did not qualify for the team score. Fellow freshman Brynn Craven played as an alternate and shot 101.
With four talented players on the Lady Pioneer roster, coach Holt expected his girls team to experience success. The early season win was just a reminder of how far the group has come over the summer as the Lady Pioneers prepare to make a run at the District 6-AAA title. District rival Coffee County finished second in the girls division.
The Warren County High School boys team finished sixth at the Tullahoma Invitational in the 14-team field.
The Pioneers were led by Clayton Myers, who shot 76. Myers just missed winning a medal at the competition as his round was the sixth-best score, but only the top-five finishers were honored.
Houston Wood finished at 79, barely edging teammate Nicholas Powell’s round of 80. Sophomore Nick Stern rounded out the team score with an 83. Warren County finished with a team score of 318.
Sophomore Brock Watson was the fifth Pioneer to play and shot 90.
The Pioneers and Lady Pioneers will jump right into District 6-AAA competition when the teams head back to the course in two days. The Warren County teams will travel to Cumberland County Tuesday for a road match against the Jets and Lady Jets. Action is set to begin at 1 p.m.
