Avery Harden and Polk County's boys golf team finished as Mountain Foothills 7 Conference champions in 2022-23

Polk County finished the 2022-23 academic year in fourth place in the Wells Fargo Conference Cup for the Mountain Foothills 7 Conference.

The Wells Fargo Conference Cup award, sponsored by Wells Fargo and the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, is a companion to the statewide Wells Fargo Cup. The Conference Cup is based on regular season performances within conference play and is designed to recognize the best interscholastic athletic performances within each of the NCHSAA’s conferences.

These awards have been sponsored by Wells Fargo, and prior to that Wachovia, since 1980.

In most conferences, points are awarded based on participation and standings in conference play. Each conference determines its own method of awarding points.

Polk County captured conference titles in volleyball and boys golf during the year.
