CHANUTE — An uncharacteristic off night from Allen Community College’s volleyball team led to a loss to rival Neosho County Wednesday.

Neosho swept the three sets 25-20, 25-5, 25-20.

“Literally everyone had an off day,” said Allen head coach Whitney Shaw. “I don’t think anyone was playing their best or even close. I would expect that when not a single player has a good day, we probably aren’t going to do too well.”

Allen County came into the night on a bit of a roll, winning four of its last five.

Bethany Williams, Madison Saia, and Gabriela Dominguez each had five kills for Allen. Sofia Otero had 10 assists to lead the Red Devils.

Karsyn Smith and Andrea Maldonado led the ACC defense with eight digs. Williams, Otero, Sadie Bakerburg, Dominguez, and Lauryn Holloway each had a block.

“We have a quick turnaround,” Shaw said. “We have practice tomorrow and then go to Johnson on Friday.”

Allen (12-12 overall and 5-3 in Jayhawk Conference play) faces Johnson County Community College and Central Methodist University.
