The volleyball team walked into the Southwestern Heights gym Saturday as regular season league champions.
They left as the Hi-Plains League tournament champions--for the second straight year.
It also marked back-to-back seasons in which the Broncs finished the league regular seasons and league tournaments undefeated.
The Broncs opened pool play with a 25-0, 25-5 win over Deerfield.
In that match, Talyn Beltran served out 24 straight points after a side out, and then she started game two with eight straight to help Lakin to the easy win.
They defeated Wichita County in straight sets, 25-8, 25-10, and then took out Elkhart for the pool title.
In that match, Elkhart jumped to an 8-0 lead, but Lakin managed to tie things up at 18-all, finally getting the win at 25-23. They won game two 25-17.
In the semifinals, the Broncs knocked off Syracuse 25-13, 25-19 to advance to the title game.
The Broncs took out host Heights 25-14, 25-12 to claim the tournament title.
The team will travel to Scott City Saturday for the Class 3A sub-state tournament.
