The North Fayette Valley girls’ basketball team bowed out of the Class 2A playoffs Saturday in Waukon, falling to the Indians, 51-32.

The TigerHawks couldn’t find the shooting touch Saturday that gave them five wins in their last six games. Waukon (15-6) came out hitting everything it threw up, racing to a 15-3 lead by the end of the first quarter.

NFV head coach Jim Calkins said, “Waukon is just too good a club to be down that far in the first eight minutes and expect to come back. However, our girls tried; they gave it everything they had.”

The next two quarters saw the Indians only gain a point, 20-19, over the TigerHawks.
