Northeastern's Devilbiss has his best outing yet for U.S. boys' volleyball team
After going a perfect 4-0 in group play for the first time in team history, Team USA continued to roll in the 2015 FIVB Boys' Under-19 World Championships in Argentina, knocking off Mexico 3-0 in the Round of 16 on Wednesday.
Team USA had its most convincing win of the tournament, thus far, winning in straight games, 25-18, 25-16, 25-22.
Individually, Northeastern High School senior Reese Devilbiss also had his most productive match of the tournament. Devilbiss, who is one of three members on the team still in high school, was used sparingly in the four group-stage matches, but finally had a chance to show his talent against Mexico. He played in each of the last two games, starting the third, and recorded three kills in the match.
Team USA will now face the winner of Russia vs. Bulgaria in its quarterfinal match.
