Only one team proved itself to be better than Mill Valley on Saturday at the Kaw Valley League Volleyball Tournament at the Bonner Springs District P.E. Center.

That team — Lansing — beat Mill Valley in pool play and again in the tournament finals.

LHS cruised past Mill Valley in pool play, 25-16, 25-17, but the Lions needed three games to dispose of the Jaguars in the tournament finals.

Lansing won game one, 25-18, but Mill Valley countered for a 25-22 victory in game two. Finally, the Lions regrouped and won the final game, 25-19, and secured the league championship.

In addition to defeating Mill Valley in pool play, Lansing hammered Turner, 25-10, 25-17, and cruised past Piper, 25-9, 25-14.

Meanwhile, the Jaguars fended off Piper, 25-20, 25-21, and trampled Turner, 25-18, 25-11.

Lansing beat Bishop Ward in the semifinals, 25-20, 25-10, while Mill Valley snuck past Tonganoxie, 25-20, 25-22, to reach the finals.

Both Mill Valley and Lansing will compete at the Class 5A regional tournament Saturday at MVHS.
