NEVADA, Mo. — Playing their third doubleheader in as many days, Allen County Community College Red Devils came out swinging against host Cottey College Wednesday.

They play four more doubleheaders in the next six days. Allen County goes to Dodge City Friday and is at Pratt Saturday then is at Cloud County Monday.
The Red Devils return home for a pair with Labette on Tuesday. They wrap up the regular season at home April 24 for sophomore day against Hesston.
