Down two sets to one, and trailing 10-3, head coach Whitney Shaw decided to call a timeout to regroup her Red Devils. Shaw and assistant coach Sarah Baker fueled fire into the veins of the Devils to not only win the set, but to upset nationally ranked Cloud County Community College.
The resilience displayed Wednesday night has been the story of the season for Allen Community College.
We were in a very similar situation against Hesston, Shaw said. In that game we called a timeout to regroup, and came back and won the set. Usually we motivate the girls, but rarely do we get on them. I know that if we can give them energy, if we push them until they get energy, hey will respond.
