The Lady Pioneers are proving themselves in the district tournament winning through the first two rounds and beating out top-seeded Coffee County 3-1 on Friday.
Warren County now advances to the championship this Wednesday on their home field. The Lady Pioneers just need one win for the tournament title, while their opponent will emerge from the loser’s bracket and have to win twice.
The Lady Pioneers first beat No. 3 seed Franklin County on Thursday, 5-2, which put them in the winner’s bracket finals against Coffee County on Friday. Alyssa Mosely was hot at the plate both nights going 2 for 2 against FC and 2 for 3 against CC, earning 3 RBIs in both games.
Madison Hollis pitched two nights in a row to be the winning pitcher in both district tournament games but not without the help of the outfield with Marli McBride catching one of the last fly outs and making a great double play to win the game against CC.
McBride caught a fly out in the seventh inning and moved the ball to get an out at second to end their matchup with Coffee County.
In the first inning, WC’s defense wasn’t messing around as third baseman Jessie Young and first baseman Kora Forbes caught some infield hits for outs.
Each fielder had their chance for a play, even third base Addison Smith who went in for Young in the seventh inning got the first ground out before the last double play.
WC went into this game against Coffee County’s 8-0 district record and didn’t back down against the Lady Raiders.
Tournament games will resume on Monday with the Lady Pioneers getting to host the team which emerges from the loser’s bracket on Wednesday.
