ARKANSAS CITY — Challenging the top-ranked volleyball team in NJCAA Division II on its home court was not going to be easy. But Allen County Community College’s Red Devils were going for broke Saturday in the Region VI, Division II playoffs.
The Red Devils didn’t get the job done but they went down swinging. Cowley County Community College’s Tigers had to work for their 26-24, 25-14, 25-19 win.

Also Saturday in the Region VI, Division II District M tournament, Johnson County Community College, which is ranked No. 3, won to advance.
