The Three Forks High School Volleyball team had its season come to an end at last week's 5B District Tournament in Manhattan.
The fifth-seeded Wolves fell in the opening round of districts on October 26 in a thrilling five-set match against fourth-seeded rival Manhattan. After the Wolves won the first set 25-21, the Tigers would battle back and win the following two sets, 25-18 and 26-24.
Three Forks stormed back in fourth, winning emphatically, 25-14. Playing on their home court, Manhattan would win in the fifth set, 15-11.
After the match, Three Forks Head Coach Tiffany Lynch said playing Manhattan this season has been a battle each match.
"We knew when we got here it was not going to be a three-and-out match. We were going to have to show up and play good, and we did. We had a lot of girls show up and play really well. We just needed to finish," Lynch said.
The highlight of the Wolves opening round match was the 25-14 victory in the fourth set.
"I loved it. We had some amazing moments and some amazing sets. We just needed to put it all together," Lynch said.
