The Nikiski volleyball team placed second at the Whaler Invitational in Barrow last weekend.
After topping Barrow in pool play, the Bulldogs lost to the Whalers in the semifinals and had to fight their way back through the loser's bracket.
Nikiski then beat Su Valley and Kotzebue before falling to Barrow in five games in the championship.
Danielle Bower and Shalene Peek were named to the all-tournament team, and coach Sharon Thompson said freshman setter Savannah Griffel did an outstanding job filling in for the injured Hillary Bogard.
