Security Federal Athlete of the Week: Sept. 5-11

Partnering with Security Federal, the Warren County Sports Authority will honor a standout local athlete each week. The WCSA and the Friendliest Bank in Town love seeing great athletic achievement and there are plenty to pick from every week in Warren County. From winter to summer, spring to fall, and on courts, fields, diamonds, dance floors and anywhere else an athlete can succeed, Security Federal and the Sports Authority are going to be on the lookout for the best of the best!

Katie Toney, Lady Pioneer soccer senior

It is not easy to be the Security Federal athlete of the week – Warren County has plenty of standouts every single time local teams take the field. It’s nearly impossible to pull off the feat twice in the matter of three weeks, but Lady Pioneer Katie Toney is something special.

Picking anybody else last week would have been tough considering Toney hit two milestones never before reached in Warren County. Last Tuesday, Toney became the leading scorer in Lady Pioneer soccer history, netting five goals against Summit to pass Ansley Mullican’s 95 goals.

By the end of the night, Toney had 98 goals, but she wasn’t close to done. Just two nights later, the senior sent two more to the back of the net in a blowout win over district rival Coffee County.

At the end of the game, the Lady Pioneers were right back at the middle of the field honoring their teammate as she was given a game ball. This time, it was honoring her for reaching the century mark – the first Warren County player to score 100 goals in their career.

As well as being the Security Federal Athlete of the Week, Pioneer Nation can vote for Toney for the Tennessean female athlete of the week:

Honorable Mentions:

Bekah Jackson, Soccer

Braylon Grayson, Football

Jackson was also a huge soccer during last week’s 7-0 whipping of the Lady Raiders. The junior netted five goals in the win, four coming in the first half as Warren County cemented its place as a favorite for a district title this fall. Jackson also had four assists in two wins last week, helping the Lady Pioneers improve to 8-2 this season.

Grayson was the leading tackler and had the most total yards for the Pioneers in Friday’s 38-20 loss to Mt. Juliet. The incredible junior finished with 12 tackles and had 106 yards rushing to go along with a 75-yard TD catch. Grayson and the Pioneers will be looking for a region victory this Friday when the team travels to play Cookeville.
