The 2017 football season will be the first since Polk County High opened in 1989 that Hendersonville and Polk will not meet on the gridiron..


The schools were conference rivals for the last 28 years with Hendersonville holding a 20-10 lead in the series.  In both 2006 and 2007 the Bearcats and Wolverines played back to back football games as they were first round playoff opponents the week after closing the regular season against each other.


Hoping this series can be resumed next season.

Yeah I was surprised not seeing Polk on Hendersonvilles schedule this year, two great programs within 20 miles of each other been playing in the same conference for the last 30 years and it's been a competitive rivalry, I know if if Mitchell went to a different conference Heritage would be the first team they scheduled

Going to be really weird not playing the Bearcats this season. Hopefully the rivalry will pick back up 2 years from now.
