WCHS prepares for softball season
Placeholder Image
If you hear Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger,” there’s a good chance a Lady Pioneer is busy swinging a bat, throwing a softball or fielding groundballs.The Warren County High School softball team has used the song as an inspiration this offseason, hoping “what doesn’t kill them makes them stronger.”The Lady Pioneers set a school record last season with 19 wins, but the team fell one game short of a second straight trip to the regionals with a loss to Cookeville in the District 6-AAA tournament. The bitter end to last season has led the Lady Pioneers to focus on making sure this season is special for seven returning senior starters.With nearly every starter returning from last year’s team, coach David Upton and the Lady Pioneers hope to eclipse last season’s win total and make a triumphant return to regionals.Bolstering the team’s chances is a pitching staff led by senior Gabi Keith. As a junior, Keith won 10 games in the circle and struck out over 100 batters.
