With just one returning starter, it’s been a year of transition for Fairmont Senior volleyball.
But now, with 2012 winding down and the playoffs under way, the Polar Bears are starting to apply everything they’ve learned.
And in Wednesday’s Region I, Section 1 tournament opener with North Marion, they needed — and used — it all.
No. 4 seed Fairmont Senior rallied from a second-game deficit and held on to beat the visiting Huskies, 25-10, 25-21, 16-25, 25-10.
Next up for the Polar Bears is defending Class AA state champion Oak Glen. They’ll visit the top-seeded Golden Bears at 6 p.m. tonight, while No. 3 East Fairmont and No. 2 Weir will play at the same time on a adjacent court.
