The Lady Wolverines took their show on the road for the first time this season, heading up I-26 to square off against Asheville High on Thursday, March 3.
Despite the chill of a late winter mountain afternoon, Polk’s bats stayed hot, and Coach Jeff Wilson’s squad handed the Lady Cougars their first loss of the year in the non-conference contest.
The ladies of Polk drew blood in four different innings, led by Amber Lynch, who went 2 for 3 and scored twice on the afternoon.  Cavin Richards, Brittany Jones, Kara Garvin and Jamie Hrobak each contributed a hit to the well-distributed Wolverine offensive attack, and leadoff hitter Shayln Brown worked Asheville, pitching for two walks and scoring a run as well.
Ace hurler Hrobak notched her second win of the season and earned her 31st career victory for Polk County, giving up no walks and allowing just two hits in another impressive complete game outing. The 12-strikeout performance brought her season total to 28, as opponents continue to struggle to solve the dominant junior pitcher.
The Lady Wolverines played host to unbeaten Pisgah High on Monday afternoon, March 7. The Lady Bears routed AC Reynolds in their season opener by a score of 11-3.
