Trojans win pre-season CKL league tournament

The Hillsboro girls volleyball team played a pre-season CKL league tournament at Pratt on Saturday. Here are the results of their pool play: Hillsboro over Halstead 25-11, 25-13; Hillsboro over Lyons 25-9, 25-11; Hillsboro over Hesston 25-16, 25-18; Hillsboro over Haven 25-18, 25-20.

For bracket play the results were: Hillsboro over Pratt 25-9, 25-23; Hillsboro over Smoky Valley 25-20, 21-25, 25-19.

“The girls played well on Saturday. I felt like we were on the attack most of the day, which kept our opponents on their heels and out of system. Passing and serving were keys to our offensive game. The girls worked through adversity and stepped up in those moments. We learned a lot about our team and what we need to work on before our next outing. It was a great way to start our season,” said Coach Sandy Arnold.

We will have more information about the Trojans and all the Marion County teams next week in the Free Press Sports Preview.
