Royal Valley Volleyball at the Jeff West Tournament

The Royal Valley varsity volleyball team continues to dominate in northeast Kansas after winning the Jeff West tournament last Saturday. The Panthers had a 12-0 record as they enter the third week of play.

 The Panthers took first in the tournament that also included Jeff West, Oskaloosa, Santa Fe Trail, Silver Lake and Valley Falls.

RV beat Jeff West, 25-12 and 27-25, and Oskaloosa, 25-13 and 25-11, in straight sets.

The Panthers also dominated Santa Fe Trail, 25-14 and 25-14, and Valley Falls, 25-11 and 25-13.

In their match-up against Silver Lake, the Panthers won the first set, 25-16, but fell in the next set, 25-13. RV rallied and won the match in the final set, 25-20.

“I was very pleased how the girls performed,” said RV coach Gary Armstrong. “Silver Lake was a huge win for us in itself. There was a lot of excitement for us, so most of us could not talk very well afterwards.”
