KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Kansas City Kansas Community College took its new No. 5 national ranking on the road over the weekend and came away with a sweep of some of the best Florida has to offer.
Competing in the Pasco Hernando Tournament in New Port Richey, Fla., the Lady Blue Devils lost only one set in sweeping past Louisburg 3-0, Florida College 3-1, Palm Beach College 3-0 and Florida State College at Jacksonville 3-0.
The sweep extended KCKCC’s winning streak to five in a row and boosted the Blue Devils’ overall record to 14-2, the best in the Jayhawk Conference alongside Fort Scott.
The Blue Devils stay on the road, playing at Jayhawk rival Allen County Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. and Missouri State at West Plains next Monday before returning home Wednesday, Sept. 24, to host a big showdown with archrival Johnson County (8-3), which is currently ranked No. 2 in the nation.
