Polk County volleyball uses strong defense to beat West Henderson for the first time ever

The Wolverines used a stifling defensive performance that included 10 blocks to win 3-1 (25-27, 25-15, 25-22, 25-16) over the Falcons on Tuesday. It was Polk County’s (17-1) first win over Western North Carolina’s premiere volleyball powerhouse.

LAUREL PARK PICKS AND PONDERINGS: OCTOBER 6, 2022

9-3-5-15 It rained here every day from Friday to Wednesday, so unsurprisingly, we’re off the grass today and tomorrow. This was one of four races originally carded for the lawn. At least they made the call yesterday afternoon. #9 Pharoahs Baby Girl (4-1) chased Lady Serenity in her debut, who snuck away to a loose lead and left the others reeling. However, Pharoahs Baby Girl outran the others and finished a strong second. She’s worked well since then and should run another good race second time out for Brittany Russell. Lots of other horses in the field have experience, but no one has showed much promise in their career. As such, I’m leaning towards two debuters to round out my top three. #3 Gold Star (6-1) has worked consistently for a while for Dale Capuano, including a strong four-furlong drill in 49 seconds on September 28. #5 Mo Martha (10-1) was entered for main-track-only, suggesting that Hugh McMahon thinks she has more aptitude on dirt. She’s been working at five furlongs for a while, so she might be looking towards longer distances in the future. This could be a good screw-tightener.

Remembering Al, Fred and Clarence

My great friend Al Creasy was my Treasurer when I was President of the Polk County Historical Association back in the 90s. We not only conserved the Association’s funds, we encouraged visits by school children. I remember stopping some 4th grade boys from demonstrating the use of a grinding wheel to sharpen a knife they had “borrowed” from a display!
