WCHS teams ready for tourneys

Dreams of district titles can become reality in the next week for Warren County teams. The baseball, softball, soccer and tennis teams will all be competing in District 6AAA tournaments, hoping to continue an amazing year for Pioneer and Lady Pioneer sports.

The tennis team is up first. The Pioneers and Lady Pioneers will be traveling to Cookeville Wednesday to compete in the individual tournament, which will be held at Tennessee Tech University.

Caroline Stewart, Elena Rowland and Easton West will all play their individual matches at 10 a.m. Alessandro Prando will take the court at 12:30 p.m.

Warren County has four doubles teams taking part in the tournament as well. Those pairings are: Elizabeth Templos and Karigan Stewart, Rachel Jackson and Adeline Travis, Ben Campos and Mitchell Caten and Wilder Higgins and Colin Riley. Three of the teams will play at 11:15 a.m., while Campos and Caten will take the court at 12:30 p.m.

The individual and team tournaments will play the second round on Wednesday as well. If any player or team wins twice Wednesday, they’ll be back Thursday for a chance to make the region tournament.

All three team sports are looking to make the region tournament. They enter their respective tournaments as major factors, including Pioneer baseball and Lady Pioneer softball teams being the No. 1 seeds.

Coach Phillip King and the Pioneers won the outright District 6AAA regular season championship and earned the No. 1 seed with a 7-1 record. Warren County won its last five district games, including sweeps of Stone Memorial and White County.

The Panthers and Warriors will play Thursday in the play-in game, with the winner heading for Warren County Friday to start a three-game series. The Pioneers can clinch a region bid by winning the best-of-three series, which will include a road game Saturday and an if-necessary game back in McMinnville Monday.

If the Pioneers advance, the District 6AAA tournament finals will be held Tuesday, May 11 at Patrick Ramsey Field.

The Lady Pioneers also got the No. 1 seed, though they did tie for the regular-season title with White County after the teams split the season series. Warren County dominated all potential tiebreakers, having outscored its district competitors 78-10 in eight games.

Full details of the tournament, which will be held in Rhea County, haven’t been released, but the Lady Pioneers know their first game of the double-elimination tournament will be against the winner of Stone Memorial and Cookeville.

For Pioneer soccer, advancing to the region will be simple. Warren County has to beat Soddy Daisy at home Tuesday, May 11. The teams played an instant classic in town earlier this year, one the Pioneers were able to win by shootout after two overtimes.
