The tournament contained 16 teams.

The Cavaliers went 3-1 on the weekend, with victories against North Dakota State (30-22, 30-16, 30-27), Des Moines (30-20, 30-15, 30-15) and Southwestern Illinois (30-21, 30-23, 30-27.

Sophomores Jackie Swab (Olathe) and Stephanie Wright (Prairie Village) made the all-tournament team, which consisted of 12 players, for the Cavaliers.

Correction

The Nov. 7 edition of The Mirror incorrectly identified a Tonganoxie eighth-grade volleyball player in the photo "Finishing in Style."

The volleyball player should have been identified as Megan Hummelgaard.
