The Warren County High School baseball team broke an 11-year streak Monday when the Pioneers played a regional-tournament game for the first time since 2001. The 2001 team ran into a Dan Uggla-led Columbia team and lost, so this year’s squad will be trying to do something that hasn’t happened in 14 years.The 1998 team was the last Warren County baseball team to claim a regional title, but Warren County (21-17) hopes to end the 14-year streak after the team won its way into the regional championship Monday, beating the District 5-AAA tournament champion Ooltewah Owls 4-3 in nine innings.Following the game, some Owl fans took offense to the Pioneers celebrating on their home field. Shouts of “act like you’ve been there before,” could be heard from the stands.Well, the 2012 Pioneers haven’t been there before.
