Windsor Dukes volleyball played on Aug. 29 in the Bronco Classic at Franklin High School. This event was sponsored by Bronco Federal Credit Union.
They played the first round and won the first (25-12) and second (25-19) sets. This advanced them to the championship game.
The Dukes played the championship game against Sussex Central and won the first (25-11) and second (25-6) sets. They were then named tournament champions.
Three players were named to the All-Tournament Team: Junior, Hannah Weisenburger and Seniors, Payton Gay and Ellie Wilkins.
Several of the girls voiced their excitement on the upcoming season.
Senior Payton Gay said, “It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve the goals you are looking for. For my last year, my goal is to boost my assist stats and run plays smoothly. As captain, my duty is to stay positive throughout the game no matter what. I’ve noticed that attitude has a lot to do with your performance in the game.”
Junior Taijii Skeeter said, “I feel this season will be great and exciting. I’ve been preparing by working hard at each practice each day. I will do good this season because I will try my best each and every time.”
Senior Gabby Perkins said, “Every game we want to be the first team to twenty-five each set. We are going to play each point like the score is 14-15 in the last set of the state championship game.”
Kate Jackson added, “I’m feeling great about this season; not only because we have very skilled players on the court, but because we all play together as more than just a team. We play as family.”
Hannah Weisenburger said, “All of us are building a tradition of being a team on and off the court with a new coach to guide us along through it.
Sophomore EJ Bankson stated, “Though we started strong and suffered a hard loss, we are going to finish stronger than we initially began.”
Sophomore Alyssa Funai concluded, “I think that as the season continues there will be more progression an increased dedication. We prepared by having long, hot practices as early as possible. I make myself better by focus and confidence.”
The Lady Dukes play on Tuesday night, Sept. 8, against Greensville County.
