The Warren County Middle School Lady Pioneers could easily have gotten rusty with all the rain delays and game changes going on. But on Wednesday’s matchup with the Tullahoma Lady WIldcats, they played like a well-oiled machine, clocking the ‘Cats, 6-1.
“We played a little sluggish. All of these rainouts have played havoc with our schedule so it is difficult to get in a groove,” said WCMS Lady Pioneer coach Marc Pyburn. “These girls are such a fun bunch to be around, high-quality young ladies.”
The Lady Pioneers showed their will to win in the first inning as JuJu Pyburn, Rhaelee Johnson and Samantha Jennings all scored runs for a 3-0 lead.
Tullahoma got on the board in the top of the second with one run, 3-1. Then Lady Pioneer Kaydee Rains responded with a run of her own, 4-1.
Defensively, the Lady Pioneers shut down the Lady Wildcats for the rest of the ballgame, but continued adding offense in the fourth as Elia Atterson and Rains each added one run to close out the contest.
The win brings the Lady Pioneers to 4-2 overall in the conference.
