The Broken Bow volleyball team claimed its first Southwest Conference tournament championship since 1988 on Friday. Bow rolled through the tournament without losing a set. Broken Bow began with a straight set win over Cozad 25-12, 25-15. Bow would meet Gothenburg in the semifinals. The Swedes advanced with an opening round win over Valentine in straight sets. Broken Bow would win the semifinal match up in straight sets 25-15, 25-19. It then seemed only fitting that for Bow to win its first conference tournament title in 31 years they would have to go through the team that has won more SWC tournament titles than any other – Ogallala. The Lady Indians from the west defeated McCook in the opening round 25-14, 25-17 and defeated Minden in the semi’s 2 sets to 1 winning 25-9 in the third. The championship match would only last two sets but they were tight and exciting with Broken Bow winning 25-23, 25-22. Bow improves to 29-2 overall and will next play at the C1-9 sub district at Rock County High School in Bassett on Monday.
