Coach Gooby Martin and the Warren County Middle School softball team will be holding a playday at the Warren County High School softball field tomorrow, while David Martin will be taking the Warren County Middle School baseball team to Coffee County for three games this weekend.

Warren County returns many of the starters off last season’s team, including starting pitchers Lindsey Cox and Emma Holmes, catcher Abby Hutchins and infielders Livia Walker, Madison Mason and Bailey Martin.
