Lady Maroons whip Red Hill in two
| After a tough start to the week, everything seemed back to normal Thursday night for Robinson High School's volleyball team.|
The Lady Maroons bounced back from two close losses earlier in the week by whipping visiting Red Hill in straight sets, 25-13, 25-19, in Little Illini Conference play to snap a two-match losing streak.
Jasmine Brooks topped Robinson with eight points and 10 digs, while Kari Bopp totaled seven points with one ace, 15 assists, five kills and five digs. Kylee Hannahs posted five points, 11 digs and four kills, Madison Bayless contributed four points with one ace, seven digs, six assists and six kills, Courtney Callaway netted two points, two assists and two kills and Sonnie Givens added a team-high eight kills along with two digs.
"Kari and Madison were both very sharp setting and hitting the ball," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "Sonnie played well at the net. We missed a lot of serves as a team and we have to get better in that area."
Robinson rolled in the junior varsity match as well, winning in straight sets, 25-15. 25-7.
Lexi Gower led the way for RHS with 13 points, including seven aces, along with five assists, two kills and one dig. Karnell Bowen posted eight points with four aces, three digs and one kill, Kalee Childress netted six points with three aces and one kill, Callaway contributed four points with two aces, six assists, two kills and one dig and Kinsey Fear added four points with three aces, one kill and one dig.
"We did a lot of good things tonight," Dean said. "We have some tough road games ahead, so we need to continue to play good volleyball."
