Devils Rise To NTC Occasion, Take 2nd

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Windsor volleyball, a 5-seed, put it all together for the NTC tournament last week and cashed it in for a 2nd place finish.

On Thursday, Windsor knocked off Altamont, 25-22, 25-22, and Beecher City, 25-10, 25-7, in pool play. On Friday, they continued on their roll with a come-from-behind, overtime, revenge win over Stew-Stras, 13-25, 25-19, 34-32.

In the gold flight of the championship round, Windsor kept the beat by scalding South Central, 25-14, 25-23. That put them in what would be the title match for the NTC Tourney against St. Anthony. St. Anthony was favored, but the Devils put it on St. Anthony in game 1, before losing in OT, 28-26. St. Anthony then won the title as expected, winning game 2, 25-18.

Windsor had a balanced attack from several players over the last week. That continued in the NTC, until the final day.

On Thursday against Altamont and Beecher City, the Devil attack swung for an outstanding 54 kills in two matches (4 games). Senior Jenny Bullock led seven other Windsor hitters with 12 kills, but sophomore Paige Woolard followed closely with 10 kills. Senior Kassy Strowmatt and freshman Autumn Bennett scored five kills, each. Seniors Charley Bailey and Erin Mowry had four kills, each. Senior middle hitter Bailey McQueen, back from injury, and senior libero Dani Bell had two kills, each.

The two Devils setters, Lindsay Floyd and Olivia Williamson dished out 17 and 21 assists to set up the 54 kills. Windsor also delivered 17 aces in the two matches, from five different servers.

Amanda Tucker led the attack from the line five five aces. Bullock and Floyd served three aces, each. Woolard had two aces and Williamson one.

The Devils recorded just 38 digs from six defenders, as they were not pressured much. Bell led with 12 digs. Bullock followed with nine, Tucker with seven, Williamson with four and Woolard and Bailey had two, each.
