The Lady Wildcats of Polk County won their second District 5-AA volleyball championship in 3 years with a convincing win over McMinn Central in the finals of the district tournament.

The Lady Wildcats of Polk County won their second District 5-AA volleyball championship in 3 years with a convincing win over McMinn Central in the finals of the district tournament. The Lady Cats prevailed in three sets 25-13, 25-6, 26-24 to take home first place in the district.

“We knew that after playing Central 4 times already, they would be familiar with what we do, so we made some slight changes in the way we attacked and it seemed to throw them off-balance in the first 2 sets,” Coach Danny Rogers commented. “They started defending us in the third set and I thought we might be in trouble for a while, but our girls were just not going to be denied. Even after falling behind in that third set, they just determined that they were going to win anyway. But I am convinced that if we hadn’t changed our strategy that whole match could have gone either way. At any rate, I am so proud of this team. They have fought and clawed all season long, and they are without a doubt the best team I have ever coached.”

Emily Wilson led the Lady Wildcats with 10 kills and 4 service aces. Brittany Rymer, in her new role as a hitter, had 6 kills. Wilson was named the Most Valuable Player of the District 5-AA tournament. She joins Brittany Rymer, Kayla Lowe, and Ashley Jones on the all-tournament team. Kelcey Myers and Morgan Biggam from McMinn Central were also selected to the all-tournament team. Named to the All-District regular season team from Polk County was Angelica Martinez, Ashley Jones, Brittany Rymer, Kayla Lowe, and Emily Wilson. Polk moves on to the Region 3-AA tournament at Red Bank where they will take on East Hamilton on Tuesday, October 16 at 5:30. The Lady Wildcat season record stands at 23 wins and 1 loss.

In their last regular season match, the Lady Cats defeated McMinn Central in 4 sets, 26-28, 25-20, 25-22, 25-19. Again, Emily Wilson led Polk with 8 kills. Emily Bates and Angelica Martinez had 3 aces each, and Catie Hughes and Brittany Rymer had 3 kills each. Kayla Lowe had 23 good serves in 24 attempts. The Polk JV lost their final match of the season to Central 25-21, 23-25, 13-15. The JV finished its season with a record of 12 wins and 4 losses.
