Windsor Upsets Arcola

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Arcola is the Arcola 1A Volleyall Regional host and the Arcola 1A Volleyball Sectional host. But they are done, after Windsor (#3) upset the #2 seeded Riders on Tuesday in the semifinal, 25-19, 26-24.

Windsor had lost to Arcola in the Windsor Invitational, 25-23, 25-21 and finished 4th in the tourney, while Arcola finished 2nd. The Blue Devils had a 14-point turnaround from experience. 

Instead of being outscored by six in the close battle in Windsor, the Devils out-scored Arcola by eight in Arcola.

Windsor notched a convincing, 25-19, win in game 1 on Tuesday. Instead of having a let down in game 2, the Devils fended off a desperate Rider comeback, showing grit down the stretch and taking game 2 in OT, 26-24.

Windsor advances to the regional championship against top-seeded Arthur. The Devil relish the opportunity, as they were lost a very game challenge to the Knights in the final match of the regular season, being out-scored by just three points in a 3-game blow-by-blow marathon, 26-24, 23-25, 25-22.

Windsor played a whale of a match without Bennett. Hitters Paige Woolard and Katie Hostetter swung for a season-high 16 and 15 kills, respectively, in a valiant performance against the 23-2 Knights. Woolard added four blocks to record 20 net points in a match an area season-high. Setter Olivia Williamson also dished a season-high 24 assists in that match.

Arthur defeated Atwood-Hammond in the other regional semifinal, 25-23, 25-19.

Windsor plays Arthur (25-3) at 7 p.m. at Arcola.
