The Lady Pioneers took care of business this week.
The Warren County Middle School volleyball team took down Westwood and Franklin South on back-to-back nights, helping the team improve to 11-1 this season. Warren County beat Westwood at home Tuesday 25-15, 25-20 before taking down its Central Tennessee Conference rival 25-13, 25-18 Wednesday.
Both opponents presented their share of challenges, but coach Holly Morgan saw her team emerge victorious both times.
“Westwood is a team that constantly moves – it seems like they can get to any ball at any time. Our girls fought hard and hustled well,” said Morgan. “Against South, we started off strong. They had improved tremendously since the first time we saw them. The second game went back and forth, but we finally got back to playing our level of volleyball.”
Krista Chisam made sure the Lady Pioneers got off to hot start against South, serving 12 consecutive points to give her team a commanding 12-1 lead. Aleah Davis, who Morgan praised for her play, stepped up with a five-point scoring streak, which allowed the team to work in some depth.
First-year players AJ Dodson and Jenna Newby were able to help close out the set.
Warren County will now turn its focus to a pair of quality opponents next week. The Lady Pioneers will try to close out its conference schedule with wins over Tullahoma and Coffee County.
The Lady Pioneers will travel to face Coffee County Monday, Sept. 16 at 4:30 p.m. before playing its final home game Thursday, Sept. 19 against Tullahoma at 5 p.m.
