NASHUA – Hoping for a different result, West Fork’s volleyball team went up against Corn Bowl opponent Nashua-Plainfield in the opener of the Class 2A Regional 6 volleyball tournament.

Unfortunately for coach Abbee Gappa’s Warhawks, who met the Huskies twice during the regular season and suffered a pair of losses, the result was the same.

Lindsey Peterson, who finished the season with 474 kills, had most of her 35 against N-P in the first set as the Warhawks opened with a 25-17 win, but the Huskies went on to reel off three straight sets to advance.

“I thought we came out right away and put it to them, just like we could play,” Gappa said of the first game. “And we just were unable to finish a whole five games – I think that was our deal all season long. That was troubling for me."
