The Blue Devils have won two of their past four matches and are now 3-17 on the season while West Point-Beemer fell to 8-13.
Blue Devil double-doubles came from Kate Hill who recorded 16 kills and 36 digs, Haley Kramer added 11 kills and 19 digs as Isabelle Francis posted 45 set assists and 13 digs to go along with a kill. Faith Powicki tallied 33 digs, Jaycee Bruns had nine kills and 13 digs, Amelia Legler tacked on 10 kills and three digs as Gabbi Judd (two digs) and Elle Powicki ( three digs) both had four kills.
Kramer finished with four service aces, Hill added three aces, Legler tacked on two and Bruns had an ace. Legler and Judd both recorded three blocks (each with a solo) as Bruns and Hill each had a block.
