KCKCC VB GAINS REVENGE WITH 3-0 JAYHAWK WIN AT NEOSHO

                Kansas City Kansas Community College passed its opening Jayhawk Conference test in impressive fashion Wednesday, gaining a measure of revenge with a three-set sweep of Neosho County at Chanute.

            The win was the fifth in a row for the No. 12 ranked Lady Blue Devils, who improved to 5-1 with their only loss to Parkland, the No. 1 ranked team in Division II.

            "This was a big win for us, especially playing on the road," said KCKCC Coach Mary Bruno. "Neosho beat us last year and will be in contention for a first division finish in the conference."

            Sophomores Kailee Dudley and Blair Russell led KCKCC with 10 kills each while Jasdel Gonzalez added eight. "We played well as a group, very balanced," said Bruno. "We're still in the beginning part of the season."

            The Blue Devils host their home opener this coming Wednesday when they host Hesston in a District N contest at 6:30 p.m. KCKCC then goes back on the road for 11 matches including tournaments at Highland Sept. 5-6 and New Port Richey, Fla., Sept. 12-13. The Blue Devils return home Sept. 24 against No. 2 ranked Johnson County.
