Security Federal Athletes of the Week: Sept. 25 - Oct. 1

Partnering with Security Federal, the Warren County Sports Authority will honor a standout local athlete of the 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!

WCHS volleyball seniors

It is a senior class the Lady Pioneer volleyball program won't soon forget. Warren County honored seniors Jessie Young, Mia Hobbs, Marissa O'Hara, Ally Beneke and Lydia Netherton last week, shortly before the five seniors led their team to a big 3-0 win over Cascade.

Warren County picked up its 10th win on a night of celebration, beating the visiting Champions 25-23, 25-10 and 25-21. The victory was the cherry on top of a night where coach Erin Blalock and the Lady Pioneer program made sure to make five seniors feel special.

Young and Hobbs are the two longest tenured Lady Pioneers. They started playing together first as Irving College Lady Tigers and also as WCMS Lady Pioneers and have moved on to be contributors for four years at Warren County High School. Young and Hobbs are a dynamic defensive duo who are always in the right spot and do the little things to help the team win.

O'Hara and Netherton were in their first years as Lady Pioneers after being really big players for Covenant the last few years. They didn't take long making their impact on Warren County as O'Hara was a good defensive player on the back row this season and Netherton was one of the team's top passers as a setter.

Ally Beneke is in her second year with the team as a co-op players who attends school in DeKalb County. Because her school doesn't have volleyball, she gets to play with Warren County and it has been a big boost for the Lady Pioneers. She is a high jumper who can sky over the net and slams the ball back at other teams. Her hitting made her one of the team's top options on offense.

All five will be hoping to keep their senior season going Thursday night by beating Coffee County in the District 6AAA tournament semifinals. The Lady Pioneers have to win to be one of the two teams who advance to regionals next week. A loss would end the season.

The Warren County Sports Authority and Security Federal Savings Bank wants to say a big congratulations to the Lady Pioneer seniors. Great job this year!
