In November, 11 Polk County High School students attended the FCA Women in Sport Conference. This nationally recognized annual event was sponsored by the Spartanburg County Fellowship of Christian Athletes and was held at The Hanger of First Baptist Spartanburg. Middle schools and high schools from Spartanburg, Cherokee and Polk counties attended the conference.
The female athletes attended six break out sessions on topics such as bullying and peer pressure and were provided lunch by Chick-fil-A.  The conference concluded with a message from 3-time NCAA champion and 3-time Olympic gold medalist softball player Leah O’Brien-Amico.
