Improving Polk Middle falls to Hendersonville Middle

Polk County Middle didn’t land the win it wanted Monday. But that didn’t stop head coach Brian Taylor from finding positives in the result.

Hendersonville Middle pulled away in the second half to take a 37-20 win over the Wolverines in Blue Ridge Athletic Conference play at Polk.

The Wolverines (1-8) stayed on even terms with the Bearcats through the first period before Hendersonville inched ahead in the second to take an 18-8 lead at the half.

Hendersonville (6-2) slowly extended the lead throughout the final two quarters.

“If there’s anything we can take away from a loss like that, it’s that we are improving,” Taylor said. Hendersonville defeated Polk by 26 points earlier this season.

“We’re definitely improving. I’m proud of our effort. We were a little more aggressive and a little more scrappy today.”

Caroline Taylor scored 14 points to lead Polk Middle, with Paige Griffin scoring four and Kayleigh Wilson adding two.

The Wolverines are back in action Tuesday, hosting Rugby Middle.
