Preview capsule outlook of today’s high school tournament action
Division I first round
No. 9 Londonderry (6-10) at No. 8 John Stark (7-9), 6 p.m.
head to head: The teams went to five sets, with John Stark winning, 3-2, just last week.
Notes: A late-season surge, where the Generals won four of their final five regular-season matches, helped give John Stark its first home playoff game in the program’s brief history. Stark also won six of its final nine matches after starting the season at 1-6. Momentum is on the Generals’ side. Londonderry went 1-3 in the final two weeks and has not won or lost more than two matches in a row.
