Volleyball – No. 3 JCCC sweeps No. 16 Neosho County

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Sophomore night proved special for the No. 3 ranked Johnson County Community College volleyball team, as they handed No. 16 Neosho County a 3-0 loss, winning 25-21, 26-24, and 25-21. The victory improved the Lady Cavaliers to 26-5 overall and to 9-0 in the conference, setting up an epic battle Oct. 30 against No. 1 Cowley College in Arkansas City, Kan.  The winner will take home the conference title and bragging rights for another year.
