As the weather heated up over the past several days, the Allen basketball and softball teams headed south.
The Red Devil basketball men and womens trip was relatively short, just 20 minutes south to Chanute to take on rival Neosho County on Saturday before heading west to face Barton County while the Lady Devil softball team crossed a couple of state lines on their way to the season-opening Cowtown Classic tournament in Fort Worth over the weekend.
Mens and womens basketball continued their downward trend, falling to Neosho 85-77 and 91-62 and Barton 98-78 and 104-46. The losses extended both teams losing skids to seven games. The Allen men move to 12-11 overall and 4-10 in KJCCC play while the women fall to 3-21 and 1-13.
