Polk County senior Brianna Gray (4) shares a laugh with teammate Kiera Littlejohn near the end of Thursday's game

Polk County finished out the season Thursday on Senior Night with a statement 72-32 win. 

Polk County opened up the game with an eight-point run, but the Brevard Lady Devils cut it close.
As the first period ended, Brevard just trailed Polk County 10-8.

Polk County, though, did not want a close battle. The Wolverines proceeded to put up two double-digit runs in the second period to outscore Brevard by a margin of 28-4 as the first half came to a close, with the Wolverines on top 38-12.

The third period showed a slowing down of tempo as Polk County (14-9, 8-4) only just put up 10 points in the period. But the Wolverines picked back up the pace and raced to a strong finish.

Bailey Staton led the way for the Wolverines with 29 points, followed by Kylie Lewis with 17 points and Kiera Littlejohn with 11 points.

Rafa Dabao led her Lady Devils with seven points, and Shay Townsend and Adeline Schultz followed suit with six and four points, respectively.

“Playing smart, playing together, running the court well, executing our game plan. Those were the big things we came up with in this game,” Polk County coach Brandy Alm said. “On Senior Night, it’s important to come away with a win.”
