Lupos outstanding effort lifts WCMS to win
Placeholder Image
Will Lupo added to his growing legacy at Warren County Middle School Monday when the baseball team played host to Coffee County in a day game in front of the student body.Lupo hit a two-run home run in the first inning to start his great game and finished it with a walk-off single as the Pioneers beat the Red Raiders 5-4 to win their fourth straight game.Lupo also pitched all seven innings, earning his fourth victory of the season.It certainly was the most memorable for the eighth-grader. Lupo dominated from the plate and on the mound from start to finish.After Coffee County plated two runs in the top of the first, coach David Martin pulled his team together and gave a candid speech about winning in front of their big home crowd.Lupo took the speech to heart as he sent a hanging curveball over the left-field wall in the bottom of the first to tie the game. The ball landed at the feet of several WCMS students who gathered in the outfield to witness what turned out to be Lupo’s big day.Coffee County scored in the top of the third to take a 3-2 lead, but Warren County responded quickly.
