KCKCC volleyball team off to good start


Kansas City Kansas Community College’s young volleyball team got the home and regional season off to a good start Wednesday, posting a quick three-set win over Hesston.

“A very good team effort; everyone contributed,” said Coach Mary Bruno of the 25-12, 25-16, 25-15 win over a Region I opponent.

The win was a good bounce back effort after a disappointing start in the rugged Southeast Iowa tournament in West Burlington.

With only one returning starter and two letter-winners, the Lady Blue Devils defeated Iowa Central in four sets but were swept in three by No. 3 ranked Parkland, Ill.; No. 8 Kirkwood; and the host team, Southeast Iowa.

The Blue Devils return to action next Wednesday, hosting Highland at 6:30 p.m.
