Olivia Evans of CHS softball

The Coffee County CHS softball team welcomed Warren County to Terry Floyd Field on Monday for their season opener.  The Lady Raiders built a 4 run lead heading to the 7th inning but a pair of errors cut the lead to 1.  Keri Munn pitched out of the jam to get the 5 to 4 win over the Lady Pioneers.

After scoring single runs in the 1st and 2nd innings, Coffee County saw Warren County cut the deficit to 1 run in the 3rd.  The Lady Raiders tallied 3 runs in the 4th inning as they strung together 3 hits and a hit batter to build the 5 to 1 lead.  In the 7th, Warren County plated 3 unearned runs before Munn coaxed a groundout to capture the win.

Munn got the win in the circle as she struck out 11 without giving up an earned run.  Munn finished with a double and 2 RBI at the plate.  Gracie Pippenger and Olivia Evans each had a pair of singles. 

After the game, Coach Brandon McWhorter had this to say about his team’s performance:
