Class of 2020 defensive specialist and libero Alexis Williams has committed to the University of South Florida (USF) women’s volleyball program.
Williams will be a junior this upcoming season at Oakville High School in St. Louis, Missouri. Last year the team went 13-15 with a 4-3 mark in district play with Williams as a sophomore, her second season of varsity action.
According to stl high school sports, Williams logged 194 digs (2.59 per set) and 25 aces (0.38 per set) to just 14 serve errors in 2016 as a freshman. She then trumped that with 350 digs (5.47 per set), 47 assists (0.78 per set), 28 aces (0.47 per set) to just 20 serve errors, 12 blocks, nine kills and a 94.92% serve reception as a sophomore in 2017. Those numbers pushed her to a second-team all-district selection.
Standing at 5’7″, Williams owns a 7’0″ standing reach, an 8’4″ block touch and an 8’7″ approach jump.
Williams also plays with Rockwood Thunder Volleyball Club. She was with the 15 Mizuno team in 2017 that won the Presidents Day St. Louis 15 Open Championship – when she was on the all-tournament team – earned second at the Big South 15 Open and fifth at the USAV Nationals Gold 15 Open. In 2016 she was also a USAV U14 Junior Beach Volleyball National Champion.
