Placeholder Image

It didn’t take long for the Warren County High School girls golf team to get back in the swing of things this season.
After ending last year by winning the District 6-AAA tournament, the Lady Pioneers claimed a pair of district victories Wednesday while competing in a dual match against Cookeville and White County.
Freshman Hannah Powell led the way as her 71 was the lowest round shot by any competitor playing at Cookeville Country Club. Junior Brittany Myers added a 76 as the Lady Pioneer team score of 147 was 11 strokes better than Cookeville’s 158. White County was well behind as the team placed third at 171.
Powell made an instant impact on the Lady Pioneers, who are already showing signs of being capable of pulling a repeat in District 6-AAA. Powell joined Myers and sophomore Saylem Powell as the three Lady Pioneers who were able to contribute to the two-player team score that would be used to determine the winner.
Hannah Powell blistered the course as her 71 was one stroke better than Anna Cunningham’s round on her home course in Cookeville.
The Lady Pioneers took part in the Tullahoma Invitational Tournament Thursday. Results were unavailable at press time.
The Warren County boys team also was in action Wednesday against the Cavaliers and Warriors. With Clayton Myers starting his senior season off with a solid 73, Warren County was able to edge White County, but couldn’t keep pace with Cookeville.
Warren County finished with a four-player team score of 304, nine strokes behind Cookeville’s winning score of 295. White County turned in a 336 scorecard.
Myers had the second-lowest individual round of any boy competing Wednesday as only Cookeville’s Robert Agee was better. Agee shot 72 on his home course to lead the Cavaliers to victory.
Braxton Womack made his Pioneer debut and the freshman was second on Warren County with a round of 75. Junior Nicholas Powell, coming off a sophomore season that saw him make a run to the state tournament, shot 77 and senior Houston Wood rounded out the team score by shooting 79.
