Polk Middle falls to division leader in baseball clash

Brevard Middle showed Monday why the Blue Devils are one of the top teams in the Blue Ridge Conference, handing Polk Middle a 13-0 setback at Polk County Recreation Complex.

The Blue Devils, who lead the BRC’s East Division, led 2-0 after three innings, then exploded for three runs in the fourth and fifth before tallying five times in the sixth inning.

Angus Weaver finished 2-for-3 to lead the Wolverines at the plate, with Evan Jones, Lawson Carter and Coble Cameron each adding base hits.

Polk Middle, now 4-5, is slated to travel to Bethel Middle on Wednesday and Asheville Christian Academy on Thursday to complete its regular season.
