Polk County High School is the home to the best all-around athletic program in the Western Highlands Conference.
The school has earned the Wells Fargo Conference Cup for the 2018-19 season. The Cup is awarded based on points earned throughout the school year for conference finishes and participation.
Polk County finished with 154.5 points, topping the 140 points of runnerup Mountain Heritage. Owen claimed third with 139.5 points, with Avery in fourth at 135, Madison in fifth at 105.5 and Mitchell in sixth at 103.5.
Schools receive points in each sport based on conference finish on a 6-5-4-3-2-1 scale. Schools also get five participation points for fielding a team in a sport, meaning each sport and each athlete contributes to the total.
Polk County won conference championships this school year in six sports – volleyball, girls tennis, boys tennis, baseball, boys track and field and girls track and field. The school had runner-up finishes in boys soccer, girls cross country and girls soccer. The Wolverines fielded a team in every sport offered.
