Northeastern's Devilbiss enjoys breakout effort for U.S. Boys' Youth National Volleyball Team


Northeastern senior Reese Devilbiss enjoyed a breakout performance for the United States Boys' Youth National Volleyball Team on Sunday.

Devilbiss recorded 12 kills and one ace for 13 points to help the national team beat China 25-21, 25-23, 25-15 to take seventh place overall at the 2015 FIVB Boys' Under-19 World Championship in Argentina.

The U.S. finished seventh out of 20 teams, which marks the first time the U.S. boys have ever placed in the top half of competition. Seventh place is tied for the highest finish the Americans have ever had at the World Championship, however the previous seventh place was out of just 12 teams in 1995.
