After suffering its first conference loss of the season Monday against Sandburg, Lincoln-Way West coach Rory Harrison said, “it was a great time to go back to the drawing board to see what our weaknesses are.”

Whatever Harrison drew up, she might think about getting it framed.

The Warriors, behind middle hitter Jake Gasparich, rolled past visiting Andrew 25-12, 25-16 on Wednesday in a SouthWest Suburban Red match.

“I think our energy and our mind-set going into the game (was different),” Gasparich said. “Going up against a great team like Sandburg, we might have been a little scared. Andrew is a great team, too, but this time we came out ready to push and kill the game.

“That was probably our best passing of the season.”

Gasparich notched match-highs with seven kills and five blocks as West (19-4, 6-1) led from wire to wire.

“Jake understands game plans extremely well,” Harrison said. “He’s a very bright student, and I think that carries over into him being a student of the game.”

West received contributions from Michael Wexter (14 assists, 4 kills), Jake Martin (9 digs) and Kenny Clawson (5 kills).

Andrew (11-10-2, 5-2) was paced by Sean Murphy’s four kills and three aces. Neal Hausmann added two aces and Sanil Thomas dished out seven assists.

The Thunderbolts played without the services of 6-foot-9 middle hitter Nick VanderZanden, the team’s leading blocker.

“We’re trying to get some more passing going,” Andrew coach Courtney Stoub said. “When we had a good pass, we had a nice offense. We need to work a little harder to get into a bit of a rhythm.”

Murphy’s three aces came consecutively in the first set to cut West’s lead 9-7, but Wexter looked for the dump on two hits to notch his second kill of the game to spark an 8-0 Warriors run.
