The Lady Wolverines of Polk County redeemed themselves after their loss to Madison this week with a dominating defeat over Avery County 9-0 Thursday, March 22.
Highlighting the evening was the third perfect game for Jamie Hrobak and solid hitting across the board for PCHS, said Softball Head Coach Jeff Wilson.
Alyssa Montgomery ended the evening with two hits and two runs, while Yancey Pace went 3-2, Chelsea Kelly 2-1 and Katie Ruff 2-1. On defense, Wilson said Shalyn Brown made a 20-yard run in to grab a hit, while freshman catcher Ashley Kropp pulled a solid game for the 10th time in this season.
PCHS currently stands at 9-1 overall and 2-1 in the Western Highlands Conference.
The junior varsity softball team, meanwhile, faced North Henderson High School at home Thursday night. JV had a 3-1 record heading into this game and showed they were ready to play early on in the evening, but lost steam as the game went on letting the Knights come back for the win 10-6. Pitching for JV were Carolyn Couch, Leanne Wallace and Kristin Wade.
Mackenzie McCool has consistently been the top hitter for the JV squad so far this season, Wilson said.
