Returning all-district selections Lindsey Cox, Ty Ramirez, Erin Hollis and Neva Tackett headline a 23-person Warren County High School softball roster announced Thursday.Second-year head coach Gooby Martin made his selections following Tuesday’s tryouts, where some of the county’s best girls came out to audition for a chance to put on the Lady Pioneer uniform.Coach Martin had the luxury of bringing back eight girls with starting experience, something he hopes will benefit his team next spring.“We do have a lot of varsity experience returning for next season,” said Martin. “I hope these girls can improve on some of the little things it takes to be successful and win against top-caliber teams.“Base running, advancing runners, sacrifice bunts and capitalizing on scoring chances will be big for us.”Cox and Ramirez, two contributors since their freshman seasons, are now seniors who will be counted on to lead the Lady Pioneers. The duo locks down the left side of the infield, where Ramirez plays third and Cox roams at shortstop.
