HAMPTON – A tough pool to dive into.

West Fork’s draw in the Hampton-Dumont volleyball tournament was difficult indeed as the Warhawks went 0-3 in Pool C held at the H-D Middle School on Saturday.

But coach Abbie Gappa’s squad salvaged its consolation match with a 2-0 win over host Hampton-Dumont, which went 0-4 on the day.

The Warhawks dropped 2-0 matches against Independence, Iowa Falls-Alden and Denver before their 21-14, 21-11 win over the Bulldogs.

“We knew coming in there was going to be some tough teams and I think both Iowa Falls and Independence are top-ranked teams in 3A – in the top 10, I know, for sure,” Gappa said.
