Senior Kevin Windisch has committed to play volleyball at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Friars’ libero shared, “I choose MIT because the academic rigor, post-graduate opportunities, reputation, and community are all exceptional. The volleyball program also stood out to me because it is a tight-knit and supportive community.”
A three-year varsity letter for Servite, Windisch earned 1st Team All-Trinity League honors his junior year with senior season awards yet to be announced. The Friars’ captain tallied 192 digs in 2022 as he led the team to the CIF-SS D2 Finals after advancing to the Semifinals in 2021. Windisch was also selected to compete in the OC Senior All-Star game that will be played later this month.
Head Coach Matt Marrujo ’07 shared, “Kevin Windisch epitomizes Servite Volleyball. He has trusted the process of working hard, being a great teammate, and keeping his faith and family as priorities. To have the opportunity to continue playing volleyball at MIT is a great accomplishment and I know he is going to have a huge impact on that program. Watching Kevin grow up from being a ball boy to a collegiate student-athlete is one of the greatest joys in my career.”
In addition to volleyball, Windisch has been involved with Priory and PAL at Servite while serving as a volunteer at the Santiago Retreat Center.
Windisch is the second Friar volleyball player to announce his college decision joining Jack Morikawa who is headed to McKendree University.
In closing Windisch added, “I would like to thank my family and coaches, your support along my high school journey was crucial to my success. Thank you so much for believing in me!”
