Polk County Middle shortstop Kaylin Jenkins

Emily Prince smacked a three-run inside-the-park home run to help lift Polk County Middle to an 11-8 win Tuesday over Hendersonville Middle in Blue Ridge Middle School Conference girls softball play in Hendersonville.

Polk Middle improved to 3-5 overall with its second victory of the week. The Wolverines travel to Brevard Middle on Wednesday in their final game before spring break.

Head coach Shannon Harris touted the play of her defense, which she called “amazing” after the Wolverines committed just two errors in the game.
