Motivated Polk Middle girls roll past Brevard Middle
Polk County Middle’s girls basketball team had an extra bit of motivation Wednesday – and played like it.
The Wolverines raced to a 21-5 halftime lead en route to a 43-19 rout of Brevard Middle in a Blue Ridge Middle School Conference matchup at Polk.
The win avenged Polk Middle’s only loss of the season, a 24-20 setback earlier this season at Brevard. And though no one wearing Polk colors would say so, the Wolverines had an extra bit of urgency in their step during the game, no doubt that early-season setback foremost in their minds.
“We’ve told them that if they just bring their own spark, everything falls into place,” said Polk Middle head coach Michelle Fagan. “We put our defensive plan together and it worked for us.
“We moved the ball around well and did a good job finding the open player.”
Polk Middle improved to 7-1 with the win while Brevard Middle dropped to 4-4.
Kristen Hall has 12 points and 10 rebounds to lead Polk Middle, with Olivia Overholt and Rachael Davis each scoring eight points. Sara Muse and Julia Griffin each had four points, with Griffing grabbing seven rebounds. Emily Prince, Marissa Twitty and Kylee Mullis each scored two and Savannah Parris had a point for the Wolverines.
Polk Middle is back in action on Monday, traveling to Rugby Middle for a 4:30 p.m. matchup.
