Polk County’s girls rolled Friday to a 56-10 victory over Chase in a Mountain Foothills 7 Conference basketball matchup at Polk.
The Wolverines honored their lone senior, Kayleigh Wilson, prior to the game. Polk then made certain Wilson’s final regular-season home game would be a memorable one.
Tied at 5-5 midway through the first quarter, Polk County scored the next 33 points, shutting out Chase for almost two full quarters. The Trojans finally tallied with 5:27 left in the third period, at which time Polk led 38-5.
Chase added one more basket and a free throw over the final quarter and a half.
Bailey Staton had 16 points to pace Polk County, with Kylie Lewis scoring 15 points and Mia Bradley adding 10.
Jayden Duncan and Sarah Gray each had six points, with Brianna Gray scoring two and Charley Dusenbury scoring one in her return from a recent injury.
Polk County improved to 12-8 overall, 7-3 in conference play and remained in third place in the league. Chase dropped to 3-17, 1-9.
The Wolverines travel Tuesday to face East Rutherford and begin the final week of the regular season.
