On Thursday, the Polk County Lady Wolverines volleyball team played host to the Bandys Lady Trojans in a pivotal playoff matchup for the district championship. The Wolverines took a while to get going, but once they started rolling they won in four games.

The Wolverines made some mental errors that made it impossible to come back in the first game as the girls fell 25-16; however, Shalyn Brown (#5) had several nice digs.

Game two went down to the wire. The Wolverines showed a great level of intensity from start to finish as well as great hustle. Sarah Angier (#13) had several important kills toward the end of the game to seal the deal for Polk 25-23.

The Wolverines gave an impressive performance in game three. It was an ultimate team effort as every player on the court and bench did their part. This combination of effort and hustle lead to a landslide victory for the Wolverines 25-14.

All this momentum helped the Wolverines win game four. The game was close but the Wolverines showed great chemistry and decision making en route to a close and intense 25-21 win.

The Wolverines were set to face Starmount High School from Yadkin County on Saturday in the second round of the district championships.
