The Polk County Lady Wildcat volleyball team extended its early season win streak to 8 games with three more wins last week. The first came at the expense of Cleveland Christian as Polk took a three set to none win 25-11, 25-22, 25-18. Coach Danny Rogers remarked that match was a very tough one because Cleveland Christian was a very much-improved team.

“We had heard that the Lady Eagles were better than they had been in recent history, and they certainly proved it,” Coach Rogers commented. “With the exception of the first set, they were in contention all night, and were in a position to win the second and third set. Our girls were able to make some plays down the stretch in those sets to help us get the win.”

Senior Emily Wilson led the hitters for Polk with 6 kills, while Brittany Rymer, who was finally able to join the team, had 2. Senior Carmela Martinez hit on 9 good serves in 11 attempts and had 6 service aces to lead the Lady Wildcats in that department. Martinez also had 12 good sets. Wilson and Angelica Martinez each had 3 service aces.

Later in the week the Lady Wildcats traveled to McMinn Central to take on the Lady Chargers and the Sequoyah Lady Chiefs in a non-district tri-match. Polk defeated the Lady Chiefs in straight sets in their first match of the night 25-7, 25-12. Emily Wilson, Kayla Lowe, Angelica Martinez, and Erin Fretwell each had 3 service aces against Sequoyah. Lowe and Martinez each hit on 11 good serves in 12 attempts, while Wilson was 6 for 8 and Fretwell was 7 for 8. Freshman Cecilia Waldroup, getting her first varsity start had 10 good sets for Polk.

In the second match of the night, the Lady Wildcats bested the Lady Chargers in straight sets, 25-20, 25-7. Angelica Martinez had 6 service aces on 16 of 17 good serves, while Kayla Lowe and Erin Fretwell had 3 service aces each. Fretwell also had 14 good sets. “We were very focused tonight in both matches, but I think we were especially intense in the Central match. They key to the rest of our season being a success will be dependent on whether we can stay that focused in our remaining matches.”
