Polk County High School’s JV girls basketball team wrapped up their season in style with a win in the Western Highlands Conference tournament.

Coach Michelle Fagan said the team finished the season with 19-4 record.

“I believe this team was so successful this year because they practiced and played with a lot of intensity and heart. They have an outstanding work ethic, and I feel like the more they were challenged, the harder they would work/play,” Fagan said.
