Warren County Middle School baseball coach David Martin may not live by Ricky Bobby’s “If you ain’t first, you’re last,” mantra, but Martin and his Pioneers were surely getting tired of second place year after year.After falling in the title tilt the last two seasons, the Pioneers finally got over the hump Saturday when the team defeated Franklin North 9-4 in the Central Tennessee Conference championship game. Saturday’s victory completed a 4-1 run through the tournament for Warren County to move the team’s record to 14-7.Earning the championship over Franklin North on its home field proved to be a two-day affair for the Pioneers. Warren County beat Franklin North Friday night in the winner’s bracket finals, only to see the Gators fight their way back into the championship game out of the loser’s bracket.Franklin North forced a second game by beating the Pioneers in the first game Saturday, but Warren County battled back to earn the ultimate prize in the second championship game.The Pioneers leaned heavily on the pitching of Trevor Collins in the finals as he went the distance to earn the championship win.
