Three Forks Volleyball opens postseason play Thursday
October 27, 2021
With the 5B District Tournament set for this week in Manhattan, the Three Forks High School volleyball is using last week as a learning experience for the postseason.
The Wolves opened last week Thursday with a thrilling five-set senior night victory over Big Timber (27-25, 20-25, 20-25, 25-19, 15-9) and fell the following night at Whitehall (25-18, 17-25, 18-25, 14-25).
"This is a really good learning lesson going into postseason play. Playing back-to-back nights for us was really good. Having that emotional senior night win and then having to come perform tonight (Friday) – we definitely learned a lot about ourselves. We learned we need to maintain our focus and keep it," said Head Coach Shann Mack. "All in all, we are either winning or learning. This was a big learning experience for us."
The fourth-seeded Wolves will open this week's tournament Thursday against fifth-seeded Big Timber in a match scheduled for 11:30 a.m. at Manhattan High School.
Going into the postseason, Mack is excited about the growth of the Three Forks squad and its potential for success.
"From day one to where we are now --- we are doing a lot of great things when we all play together. Now our job is to figure out how to do that consistently over a weekend so we can continue our season," said Mack. "When we put it all together, we can play with the best teams in our conference. We took Townsend to five sets for a reason. We have to believe in what we are doing, we have to believe in our mission, and we have to believe in each other."
