Pioneers prepare for season
Placeholder Image
One-year wonders or the start of something great? That’s the question facing the Warren County High School baseball team as coach Adam Childs and the Pioneers get ready to start this season.Warren County shocked the Midstate last year when the Pioneers won 21 games and advanced to the substate tournament, far surpassing their predicted finish of last in District 6-AAA by winning more games than the previous three seasons combined.In Childs’ first season, the Pioneers enjoyed the benefit of having 12 seniors and catching teams by surprise with their small-ball ways and sound fundamental play. While opposing teams will be wary of Warren County this year after last year’s run, the Pioneers were still predicted to finish fourth this season in District 6-AAA.Coach Childs knows the ranking is a reflection of what his team lost, while also showing his team that one year won’t change the perception of the Pioneers.“We lost five starters and our top three pitchers,” said Childs.
