The Abilene Cowgirl freshman and junior varsity volleyball teams won their respective tournaments Saturday in Abilene.

While it was raining outside on the cool Saturday morning, the Cowgirls were raining points inside the Abilene gym as they swept the competition in the two brackets.

The freshman team defeated Hays High School in the championship after winning its pool play with victories over Concordia, Council Grove and Rossville.

They then advanced to the semifinals with wins over NCKL league foe Wamego and the right to play in the finals.

The JV squad won its pool play over Junction City and Marysville.

They met up with Smoky Valley in the semifinals and won in three sets.

The championship match was against Thomas Moore-Prep of Hays with the Cowgirls winning 25-14, 25-14.
