When a team is undefeated after the first half of the year, you begin to hear rumblings about a “perfect season”. In women’s volleyball, the College Wesmen put an end to those rumblings, taking it to the Providence Pilots, and delivering them their first loss of the season.
Finishing the weekend with a 2-0 record, the College Wesmen were firing on all cylinders, but the glue keeping it all together was setter Devon Guenther, who continues to help lead this team towards championship aspirations.
According to head coach Lee Montgomery, Guenther is as well-rounded as they come, providing not only athleticism, court awareness, and raw talent on the court, but she’s also a vocal leader, and strong presence off of it.
“Devon’s play this past weekend mirrors what it’s been like all season long, with her leadership, positivity, and intensity,” says Montgomery. “Devon takes great pride in all areas of the game, but her defense, set choices, and court coverage are a few of the attributes that stand out every game.”
In just her first year on the team, it’s clear that Guenther has quickly found herself in a significant role on the second-place College Wesmen. Guenther however, is very much up to the challenge, and if everything goes right, she can play a huge part in the College Wesmen’s quest for a championship.
