Any fear of a letdown by the Warren County High School volleyball team following the senior class setting the career wins record were dispelled Tuesday night when the Lady Pioneers took on the Coffee County Lady Raiders.In a pivotal District 6-AAA match, Warren County won in straight sets to improve to 26-6 this season and 4-1 in district.The Lady Pioneers, who feature six seniors who took home their 106th victory against Coffee County, won 25-15, 25-20 and 27-25 to send the Lady Raiders back to Manchester with a loss.Coach Franklin Fisher thought the victory was important, especially with seeding in the District 6-AAA tournament on the line.“A district win is always big,” said Fisher. “This one was even bigger because our two teams know each other so well and are pretty equal in terms of talent.”The talent of Warren County was evident from the opening whistle. The Lady Pioneers pulled away in the first set to win with ease as senior Karaline Deaton got on a roll serving.With the game going back and forth through the early stages, Deaton gave Warren County breathing room when she served eight straight points.The final point in the streak was an emphatic one as junior Kelsey Lawrence drilled a kill through the heart of the Coffee County defense to make it 22-12 in favor of the home team.
