The Polk County Lady Wolverines posted solid back-to-back-to-back shutouts Friday, April 27 and Monday, April 30 in a double-header against Hendersonville and a single game against Mitchell County.
The team is now 17-2 overall, with a 10-1 record in the WHC.
“I feel like we have a very mature team. Our girls understand how to play together,” said Coach Jeff Wilson.
Wilson said he’s not surprised but exceedingly pleased with the team’s performance in all three games.
The Wolverines downed the Bearcats 11-0 in the first and second games Friday night, with starting pitcher Jamie Hrobak hitting 3-3 and grabbing home runs in both games.
In game one against Hendersonville, Shalyn Brown went 2-2 and Amber Lynch 2-3. Yancy Pace came in as the relief pitcher for Hrobak.
In game two bats remained hot, with Alyssa Montgomery hitting 4-4 and Brittany Jones 3-3. Katie Ruff came in as relief pitcher.
When it came time to face off against Mitchell County, the Wolverines kept the heat alive, scoring nine runs in the first inning.
“I believe it could be the most runs we’ve scored in an inning this year, especially top of the first,” Wilson said.
Shalyn Brown went 3-4 on the evening, while Shea Wheeler had 2-2 with three runs batted in and Megan Lieberman went 1-1 with an RBI.
Polk County ended the game 15-0 over Mitchell. The Lady Wolverines will play Swain today, Wednesday, May 2.
