You are officially invited to attend the first event of its kind by the Warren County Middle School softball program, the Blue and Red game.
First-year head coach Marc Pyburn would like to see everyone come out and support his Lady Pioneer team at McMinnville Civic Center's Cat Walker Field on Feb. 20 for a fast-pitch exhibition game.
Coach Pyburn has expressed his excitement for this upcoming season and feels the Lady Pioneers are loaded with young talent as well as several seasoned veteran players. This Saturday’s game will feature this year’s Lady Pioneers.
Coach Pyburn will team up with assistant coach Monica Lane and compete against the two other assistant coaches, Nick Hollis and John Wilson. The teams will be divided into two groups and drafted by their respective coaches for Saturday’s game.
The game will be played just like a regular season seven-inning game. Players will show up at 8:45 a.m. to stretch and warm up with a game time set for 10 a.m. Visitors are encouraged to stay and meet the players and coaches after the game.
All food, desserts, and drinks will be provided by Chicken Chef, Bojangles, and Domino’s at no cost. Admission is free. The Lady Pioneer team will be selling T-shirts and season tickets.
Coach Pyburn would like the community to get on board with this team and he is very excited about the Lady Pioneers chances this year. WCMS made it all the way to the championship game last season and coach Pyburn is hopeful the Lady Pioneers are poised to contend for a second run at the title.
The Lady Pioneers will compete on Feb. 25-27 in a play day before the season officially starts. The first scheduled home game for WCMS will be March 1 versus Harris Middle School.
