Placeholder Image
It only took two days for the Warren County High School softball team to put a rough start to the season behind it for good.The night after winning 4-1 in their home opener against Franklin County, the Lady Pioneers traveled to Cumberland County and crushed the Lady Jets in a doubleheader.Warren County won the first game 14-1, then followed it up with a 12-0 shutout.Coach David Upton has been looking for consistency in three main areas this season: pitching, hitting and defense.He got it Tuesday night when his team improved its District 6-AAA record to 2-1 and overall record to 4-5 with a pair of impressive victories.Runs were easy to come by against the Lady Jets as Warren County piled up 18 hits in the first contest and 14 more in the second game.While the Lady Pioneers seemed to be making a constant loop around the bases offensively, senior Gabi Keith and junior Monica Lane made quick work of the Lady Jets when Warren County took small breaks from hitting.Keith pitched the first game, giving up three hits and one run while striking out five. Keith picked up her third win of the season, moving her record to 3-4.Lane was just as solid in the second game. Pitching her second contest of the regular season, Lane threw a shutout, holding the Lady Jets scoreless while surrendering just two hits and sitting down four.Lane was also a big part of the Lady Pioneer offense taking off against the Lady Jets.Lane finished the night with seven hits in eight at-bats, tops on the team.
