Polk Middle subdues Apple Valley in straight sets

Polk County Middle overcame a slow start Monday to roll to a 2-0 win over Apple Valley in a Blue Ridge Conference volleyball match at Polk.

The Wolverines (6-2) fell behind 8-2 in the opening set, but the serving of Emiley Pagan helped Polk Middle score six straight points and overcome that deficit, and the Wolverines pulled away late to claim the set.

The second set offered much less drama. Polk Middle jumped out to a 12-3 lead and kept building the margin until closing out the match.

Apple Valley dropped to 1-6 with the loss.

Polk Middle hits the road on Wednesday, traveling to Flat Rock for another BRC match.
