The weight of expectations haven’t crushed the Warren County High School volleyball team.The Lady Pioneers showed over the weekend at the Chattanooga Choo Choo tournament that the team can hang with many of the top teams in the state, as evidenced by Warren County going 4-1 and advancing the to quarterfinals of the event.The four wins, coupled with a District 6-AAA victory over White County last Thursday, improves the Lady Pioneers’ record to 17-3 this season as the senior class nears 100 wins in their career.Coach Franklin Fisher has been taking his team to Chattanooga for a long time to compete in the Choo Choo tournament. This year’s finish was the second-best performance by the Lady Pioneers and the competition was as fierce as ever.“This tournament is a great experience for our team every year,” said Fisher. “A lot of volleyball is about mental toughness as well as physical readiness.“To get a chance to face the top teams in the state and compete as well as we did is a testament to the ability our team has and the preparation they put into every practice to get ready for matches.”Warren County opened play in Chattanooga by sweeping through its pool.
