The Lady Pioneers turned back Hannah Kate Sims twice, but she wouldn’t be denied a third time.Sims’ drop shot proved to be the difference as White County defeated Warren County in a five-set thriller at Charlie Dalton Gym.“Hannah is someone we’re confident in going to when we need a point,” said White County coach Joni Trivette. “She’s young and still has to work on finishing, but that’s a big confidence boost.“It’s always big to go on the road and pick up a district win.”It came as a mild shock to the Lady Pioneers, who won the first and third set to get to the brink of victory. White County rallied back to win the final two sets, seizing control in the deciding frame behind the serving of Lauren Turner.Turner took advantage of two poor hits by Warren County before rocking two aces to give White County a 14-9 lead.
