They’ve done some good things at the middle school.”The Pioneers begin their season Nov. 22 with an away event at Oakland, but coach Turner’s team has already been tested in preseason.The Pioneers traveled to Forrest last Saturday and competed in a field which included Smyrna, Wilson Central and Lincoln County.Warren County had a great weekend as the team combined to 31-14 overall in a day full of matches.The Pioneers got undefeated performances from Ben Francis, Bailey Breist and strong showings by a handful of freshmen.Francis is the senior leader of the Pioneers and wrestles in the 170-pound weight class.
