The Wolverine men’s tennis team came out of the gate to a roaring start with a record of 4-0 heading into a home game against Chase today, March 7.
“This could possibly be the strongest team from top to bottom I have had since coaching here at Polk County,” said PCHS Head Coach Richard Davis. “Our expectations are to finish ahead of Owen High School this season and make the state playoffs. At this point we are certainly off to a good start!”
Davis said the Wolverines topped 3AA Crest High School in Cleveland County March 1 by a final score of 5 – 4.
This was the first time in three years Polk County has beaten Crest, Davis said.
“They were by far and away the toughest opponent to this point,” Davis added.
The team played West Henderson away Tuesday, March 6 and faces Chase today before then facing off against Thomas Jefferson at home on Thursday, March 8.
