Polk County’s Lady Wolverines pulled out a thrilling win at home over Madison Monday, May 7 giving them claim to the title of co-conference champs.
The Lady Wolverines had lost to Madison once earlier in the year but they were determined not to meet that same fate this time around.
PCHS Coach Jeff Wilson said the team came out to play with a different motto this year.
“We played with the idea of ‘new role, new direction’ with our new role being conference champs,” Wilson said. “The great thing is we’ve been unified in our vision and that’s all because these goals have not been my goals, they’ve been our goals.”
At the end of the seventh inning Monday night, strength from the pitcher’s mound and solid defense on both sides kept the teams tied 0-0. It took determination and every single player to pull out the win, Wilson said.
“We need everybody, because you never know who’s going to do it; who’s going to make that winning play,” Wilson said.
