Six home games, return of Hendersonville highlights Polk 2019 football schedule

Six home games, including one marking the resumption of a series with a traditional rival, and two television appearances highlight Polk County’s 2019 football schedule.

The Wolverines will open their upcoming season on August 23, hosting Cherokee. The game marks the first meeting between the two school since the 2008 season. In addition to being Polk County’s season opener, the game will also mark the debut of Cherokee head coach David Napert, hired in May to lead the program.

The Wolverines will travel August 30 to North Gaston, the first meeting between the two schools, before returning home Sept. 6 to face R-S Central. Polk will then have an open week before hosting East Henderson on Sept. 20 for Homecoming.

After a two-year break, Hendersonville returns to the schedule, and the Bearcats will visit Polk County on Sept 27. That game will also be shown live on WMYA-TV.

Polk County then wraps up non-conference play with a trip to East Rutherford on Oct. 4. That game will be the first road game for the Wolverines in five weeks.

Polk County begins Western Highlands Conference play on Oct. 11, hosting Madison, before traveling on back-to-back Fridays to Owen and Avery. Polk County will have just one home game in October.

Mitchell comes to G.M. Tennant Stadium on Nov. 1 for Senior Night before the Wolverines travel to Mountain Heritage on Nov. 8 to end the regular season. That game will also be shown on WMYA.
