Pioneers come up short in district championship
WCHS Pioneer Trevor Collins pitched all 6 innings in Thursdays championship game in Cookeville against the Cavs.
It looked like the Pioneers might pull off another seventh-inning win Thursday in Cookeville for the championship mantle.Down by 4 runs, after 3 innings, Warren County made it a 2-run ballgame in the fourth, 4-2. Going into the seventh, Pioneer Isaac Golden doubled on a line-drive to center as lead-off batter. Brooks Helton scored Golden to narrow the game to 1 run with a single to right field.With only 1 out, Warren County looked poised to get busy with the tying run on base when a series of unfortunate events ended the contest as the Pioneers were picked at second and then were retired looking, ending the inning with the Cavs still on top, 4-3.“I thought we were a little tired early after a big series with Rhea County, but our kids battled and just came up a little short,” said WCHS coach Adam Childs.
