Polk County Middle School’s volleyball squad has its eyes firmly set on a conference title. Thus far, that goal remains solely in focus.
PCMS rolled to its fourth straight win of the season on Wednesday, routing Apple Valley Middle School 25-9, 25-16. Polk has yet to lose a set in its first four matches, and head coach Brandy Alm has high hopes for the team.
“We have an outstanding group of girls and they are very talented,” Alm said. “The keys for our season are communicating, making good decisions, staying focused and always being intense.
“Experience is our biggest strength. We have several returning starters from last year and every day the girls work hard and improve even more.”
Polk has already knocked off Rugby, Apple Valley and Brevard, expected to be among the contenders for a conference title. A home showdown with Hendersonville Middle awaits on Monday.
“Rugby, Apple Valley and Brevard, I believe, will be tough second time around in division play,” Alm said. “All three teams have great coaches and will improve tremendously. We face Hendersonville Monday and I don’t know too much about them, but they also have a great coach.”
