Polk County Middle’s golfers took third place Tuesday in a tri-match at Meadowbrook Golf Club.

The Wolverines encountered stiff competition as twins Rutledge and Bale Pace each fired nine-hole scores of 43 to lead Hendersonville Middle to a team total of 185.

Apple Valley followed with a 231, with Polk Middle posting a 244.

David Amitrano led the Wolverines with a personal-best 58, followed by Addie Buss (60) and Brockton and Braedyn Davis, who each carded 63s.
