In the second week of the 2012 season, the Polk County Lady Wildcat volleyball team ran their record to 5-0 with wins over Maryville Christian and Tellico Plains. Polk started the week off with a return engagement and straight set victory over the Lady Eagles 25-8, 25-16, 25-16.
“They gave us a rough time when we played them up there last week”, Coach Danny Rogers stated. “They had us on the ropes in a couple of sets which we won by just 2 points, and were on the verge of beating us in those sets. I believe our girls realized that this team was for real and it was going to take a good effort to beat them. They turned up the intensity in this match and that is the reason we were able to win in somewhat easier fashion.”
Emily Wilson and Catie Hughes led Polk’s hitters with 4 kills each, while Angelica Martinez continued her hot serving, hitting 23 good serves out of 23 attempts with 7 service aces. Kayla Lowe also had a hot hand in serving, hitting on 20 good serves in 23 attempts with 8 service aces. The Polk junior varsity avenged their only loss of the season, a straight set loss to Maryville Christian, by defeating the Lady Eagles JV 25-6, 22-25, 16-14. Shyann Bussey hit in 11 good serves in 15 attempts with 8 service aces, while Emily Bates and Katrina Brackett had 3 service aces each. Bates hit on 11 good serves in 14 attempts, while Bracket was 5 for 6.
In the second match of the week, the Lady Wildcats traveled to Tellico Plains and defeated the Lady Bears 25-22, 24-26, 25-17, 25-18. According to Coach Rogers, “Tellico is a tough place to play and they always give us all we want. Every set was very competitive and we lost our first set of the season, but the girls hung in there and we left with a win.”
Again, it was Emily Wilson and Catie Hughes who led Polk’s hitters. Hughes had 5 kills while Wilson had 4. Angelica Martinez was 18 for 22 on serves with 8 service aces, while Erin Fretwell was 17 for 17 serving. Kayla Lowe also had a very good serving night, hitting on 31 good serves out of 32 attempts. Fretwell also had 30 good sets to lead Polk in that department.
The Lady Wildcat junior varsity ran their season record to 4 wins against only 1 loss with a straight set win over the Tellico junior varsity. Polk came back from a 18-11 deficit in the first set to win 25-22, and then easily won the second set to capture the match. Individual statistics for that match were not available.
