Congratulations in order

Published 7:09 pm Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Not everyone’s season has come to a close as the spring semester draws to an end. So far both Landrum and Polk County high school athletic teams have garnered quite a bit of success.
Polk County baseball conquered Mountain Heritage for the Western Highland Conference championship.
The Cardinals men’s track team won its eighth Upper State title and went on to place fourth at state. Their female counterparts placed ninth at state, while LHS sophomore Shelby Morris grabbed the top of the podium with a first-place state finish in pole vaulting.
Polk County’s 4×400 meter women’s relay team brought victory home to the Wolverines with a second consecutive state title, as well.
There are still other teams seeking out their victories, including Polk County soccer, which plays South Iredell tonight in an effort to reach the state quarter finals.
The accomplishments and accolades for these teams and others have been big this year, and while some could say it’s just sports, we believe these students had to put in a tremendous amount of dedication and determination to reach these goals.
Way to go, athletes… you make us proud!
