On Saturday, the Lady Wolverines volleyball team hosted Forbush in an intense playoff matchup. The Wolverines were able to stave off several runs by Forbush to win in four games and advance to the next round.

The first game was total domination by the Wolverines as they broke out to an early lead and never looked back. Brittany Phipps (12) and Kailey Russell (2) really made it easy as they both had several unstoppable spikes to give Polk the win 25-17, even though Forbush made a strong push toward the end of the game.

The second game went just as well as the first for the Wolverines as the entire team showed great intensity and awareness. Sarah Angier (13) scored several key points for the Wolverines, who went on to win 25-16.
