Landrum sophomore grabs state title in pole vaulting by Joey Millwood

When Shelby Morris was in ninth grade, track wasn’t even on her radar. She can remember the first conversations she had with Landrum Coach Russell Mahaffey about track. “I didn’t want to come out,” she said. “After talking to Coach Mahaffey, I went and tried it.” On Saturday, she didn’t just try it; she dominated. Morris, now a sophomore, won the 1A South Carolina High School League pole vault championship at Spring Valley High School on Saturday, May 12 with a vault of 9 feet. Her success on Saturday just reaffirms what Mahaffey saw in her in the first place. “She’s an athlete,” Mahaffey said. “She can do anything.”

For Morris, it was a bittersweet day. After the dust settled and the sophomore knew she had won, she continued to jump, showing just how much Morris loves track now. She made those jumps in an unsuccessful

effort to break the school record, which is one inch higher than her championship vault. She has two years left, however, so that record probably won’t stand for long. Last season the Lady Cardinals finished runner up in the

state finals, but this year they earned a respectable top 10, led by her first-place finish. She finished as runner-up in the state last year, but this year she finished with a medal around her neck.

Polk High women’s 4x400 relay state champions again Polk County High School’s dominating women’s 4x400 Meter Relay Team exceeded expectations Friday, May 11 at the NCHSAA 2A State Championships held at NCA&T University. Polk County won the state title in the event last year with a time of 4:10. Polk’s fastest time coming into championships this year was a 4:06. With several teams across the state posting equivalent and faster times this season, Polk’s runners had their work cut out for them. Polk’s time of 4:17 at the regional qualifying meet barely put it in the fast heat and the team had

to operate out of lane eight. Senior Mary Kate Christiansen ran a strong first leg, passing the baton to sophomore Autumn “the Rocket” Miller, who passed four runners over her last 150 meters to bring the baton to third-leg senior Casey McDowell. McDowell posted the fastest 400 split of her life and handed off the baton to anchor-leg senior Rebecca Elliott, who quickly established a lead and held off a late surge down the homestretch from Cuthbertson High. Polk crossed the line in 4:02.37, setting a new school record. Polk’s 4x4 performance qualified them for the Meet of Champi-

ons May 26 at WSSU, where the top finishers from all classifications 1A-4A will square off. The relay team also qualified them for Outdoor Nationals. Elliott placed ninth overall in the 800 Meter Run at 2:25, and the Lady Wolverine 4x800 Relay (Elliott, Miller, McDowell and Shelby Wells) placed ninth in 10:59. Markece Cunningham placed eighth in men’s shotput (47-01) and seventh in discus (137-03). Senior Cary Littlejohn placed eighth in men’s long jump (2007.5) and ninth in the 200 meter (22.77). Senior Andy Conner ran

a personal record, placing fifth in the 400 meter (50.06). Kevin Angier scored no-height in pole vault and the 4x400 relay (Mason Umlauf, Littlejohn, Kyle Whitson and Conner) placed 15th in 3:37. Complete results are available at The team was welcomed home by a cross-county motorcade local fire departments, police and other emergency personnel. Some met the team as far out as CountyLine Road and many more joined at Laughter Pond and escorted them to Food Lion in Columbus at 11 p.m. – article submitted by Jenny Wolfe

Polk soccer beats East Lincoln to advance in playoffs by Samantha Hurst

A heated overtime soccer match against East Lincoln Friday, May 11 ended in victory for the Polk County High School Lady Wolverines. Ellese Cash came up with the winning goal, her second on the evening, in the 104th minute. Cash knocked the ball into the net off an assist from Mckenna Callahan, who laid the ball across the goal after Lyric Flood tossed it in during the second period of overtime against the Mustangs. “ We e x p e c t e d a p r e t t y competitive, close game and that’s what we got,” said PCHS Head Coach Lennox Charles. The Wolverines ended the game 3-2 with that goal. Charles said Cash made all the difference offensively for the Wolverines. “She definitely played her best game of the year Friday,” he said. “She worked very hard and was dangerous that night. She made East Lincoln have to constantly worry about her.” Cash had also opened up scoring Friday night with the Wolverines’ first goal in the first three minutes of the game, Charles said. Polk scored again, going up 2-0 off a Samantha Firby goal, assisted by Alessandra Akers. “Talking to the East Lincoln

coach after, he said he felt the biggest difference in the game was us getting those goals early,” Charles said. “They were unsettled for most of the first half of the game and by the time they got settled we were ahead.” Charles said he also believes his team playing consistently well on defense played a key role in the win. “As a whole we played really good soccer,” Charles Carol Scoralick chases down a ball in an earlier game this season. The Lady Wolverines said. “Everyone we soccer team defeated East Lincoln Friday, May 11 to advance in playoff season. The put in made a solid team will play South Iredell Wednesday, May 16.

Polk High baseball loses in first round of state playoffs by Samantha Hurst

Polk County baseball suffered a heartbreaking defeat at home against Smoky Mountain Friday, May 11 in the first round of state playoffs. The Mustangs took down the Wolverines 5-0 early in the game and the score never changed. PCHS Head Coach Ty Stott said though the Wolverines were matched against a third seed it all came down to who brought their best out Friday night. “We were 14-0 but didn’t bring

our A-game,” Stott said. “They seemed to bring theirs. We just never put the pressure on them.” Stott said the Wolverines especially needed to put more pressure on the Mustang’s pitcher Friday night. “We never forced him to adjust or battle the way we needed to,” Stott said. “You’ve got to make him think and we were going up there trying to predict what he was going to do and you can’t do that against a left-handed pitcher.” Several Wolverines did get on base, including Wes Brady, Alec

Philpott, Bryce Martin and others, but the team couldn’t convert those opportunities into scores. Stott said he believed Smoky Mountain and their first-year head coach came into the game feeling they had nothing to lose and put everything on the table. “They threw everything they had at us tonight,” Stott said. And in the end he said Smoky Mountain, which the Wolverines beat 8-2 earlier in the year, knew the Wolverines’ weaknesses. The one weakness that seemed to plague the team all year – inju-

ries - caught up with PCHS again May 11 with pitcher Roberto Taft out. Stott said he believed early on that the Wolverines could be conference champs this year, but he said had someone told him they’d do it with all the injuries they faced, he’d never have believed them. “I think this field has a lot of magic but not tonight,” Stott said. “It’s depressing for these seniors that it has to end this way but I think that conference championship is really going to mean a lot to a lot of people and that’s something to be proud of.”
