It was Senior Night; the Blue Crew was ready, the stands filled and an excitement was in the air. Polk came out focused and built an 18-17 lead in the first quarter against Hendersonville.

The Wolverines gained a further advantage when guard Shawn Rogers was disqualified from the game late in the first quarter for a flagrant foul on Jamal Tanner. However, Hendersonville came back with a 21-6 second-quarter run to make it a 38-24 halftime lead.

But the Wolverines did not put their heads down. They outscored the Bearcats 23-9 in the third quarter to even the score at 47 going into the fourth quarter.
