Windsor volleyball (17-4, 7-1 NTC) had to bounce back from a non-conference loss on Monday in a hurry, as they had to defend their 1st place NTC standing on Tuesday against conference foe Neoga. Windsor pulled out a close game 1 victory and then cruised in game 2 for the win, 26-24, 25-18.
"We came into tonight a little heavier after last night's loss and I think that showed through most of the match," said devil coach Lori Bennett. "We were on edge most of the night and it just didn't feel comfortable. Our passing and defense was very stable from the beginning and it allowed us to be effective, offensively. As a team, we do a nice of job of keeping our focus on the right things during the match. That's what has allowed us to have some success this season. I was happy with how we competed from start to finish and look forward to getting back into the gym to work on some things before Thursday."
Top hitter Jenny Bullock was the leader at the net once again, while Bailey McQueen, who had a coming out party on Monday stayed hot. Buillock swung for 10 kills and led the defense with 11 digs. McQueen not only had a team-2nd six kills, but the team's only block for 7 net points. Kassy Strowmatt also swung with some success, recording four kills. Libero Dani Bell had another double-digit night on defense, getting down for 10 digs.
As a team the Devils swung for 25 kills, 35 digs, in the 2-game set.
