Published 12:46pm Monday, October 22, 2012

Polk County High School women’s tennis team had another successful season, winning the conference championship against Owen High School and Mountain Heritage High School. The Wolverine’s lost, however, in the first round of playoffs to Draughn High School from Marion.
Two of the individual teams from Polk also won the No. 1 seeds in the conference, which gave them the opportunity to play in the regional playoffs that were held at Gardner Webb University on Friday Oct. 19.  Alivia Livesay and Hannah High represented Polk in doubles and Mackenzie McCool represented Polk in singles.  McCool faced one of the top seeded players and lost a very tough first round match 6-4, 6-3.  She finished her regular season with 13-1 record.
The team of Livesay and High won their first round match at the regional playoffs 7-6, 6-4 and then lost a three-set heartbreaker against Maiden High school 6-4, 5-7, 2-6.
