Windsor Blind-Sided By Arthur In Final

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Windsor volleyball got blind-sided by the Arthur Knights in the Bethany 1A Regional championship match on Thursday, 25-18, 25-19.

Windsor notched their 20th win of the season a week ago Monday taking out Arthur in Arthur, 25-15, 25-22. So when the regional championship came down to a rematch between the Devils and Knights it looked like the Devils would win the regional, advance to the Stew-Stras Sectional, and have a good shot at coming home for the Windsor Super-Sectional. But, those expectations bottomed out in the title match as Arthur upended the Devils.

In the last meeting, Windsor had 11 kills, 3 aces, 9 assists, 23 digs, and one block reported. They actually had a smidge better stats this time. They had 10 kills, 3 aces, 10 assists, 23 digs, and 5 blocks reported. What happened? Arthur adjustments.

Arthur’s coach pointed out that in the first meeting they committed 15 dead serves. They cleaned that up. They also played a lot better defense. So even though the Devil stats were about the same, Arthur got the points and tipped the scales in their favor.

Arthur had 18 kills reported, eight more than the Devils. Arthur had 20 assists reported, 10 more than the Devils. Arthur had 6 aces to Windsor’s 3. Arthur recorded 23 digs, the same as Windsor. Arthur reported just one block, while the Devils registered five.

Arthur’s defense handled the Devil swings. Arthur was led  at the net by Jessica Davis with eight kills, Julia Cohan with five and Karly Goodman with five. Windsor was led by Jenny Bullock with just three kills, Kassy Strowmatt, Autumn Bennett, and Erin Mowry with two, each.      

Arthur advances to the Stew-Stras Sectional on Monday, playing Broadlands Heritage on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the first semifinal of the night.

Windsor capped their season with a 21-11 record.
