2020 SEK League Volleyball Champs

Labette County has captured the 2020 Southeast Kansas League volleyball championship. This is the Lady Grizzlies’ first league title in volleyball since 2004 and the fifth in program history — also winning it in 1988, 1989 and 1996.
With an unbalanced league slate due to COVID-19, the champion this season was determined by winning percentage in league competition. Labette County went 10-2 (.833), with Chanute taking second at 8-3 (.727) and Independence finishing third at 7-3 (.700).
LCHS’ championship ended the three-year run at the top by Independence — the longest such string of league titles since Chanute won four in a row from 2012-15.
This is the official final standings for the SEK League season. Also included is Saturday’s sub-state schedule for all league teams.
