Lady Maroons beat Lawrenceville in 3
| They didn't make it easy on themselves, but Robinson High School's volleyball team got back in the win column Tuesday night (Oct. 2).|
The Lady Maroons rebounded from their first conference loss last week by rallying past Lawrenceville in three sets, 27-25, 23-25, 25-17, in their Little Illini Conference contest.
"It was another exciting night of volleyball for the fans," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "We knew Lawrenceville keeps getting better and better and we definitely had our hands full. We came out very flat. We fell behind 9-0 in the first set. We fought to pull within two, then got down by seven again. Gracie Gower made some clutch serves and Lauren Weber had some big kills in the final few points to pull it out. The second set we played better, but missed six serves. We couldn't get anything going. In the third set, it was all about the passing. Amber Hillard, Sydni Bailey and Jaedyn Johnson made one good pass after another. This allowed Gracie Shidler to get the ball where it needed to go and she did a great job."
Bailey led RHS with 12 points, including two aces, nine digs and five kills, while Gower posted nine points with two aces and three digs. Shidler totaled eight points, 24 assists, four digs, one kill and one block, Hillard contributed six points, 17 digs and six kills, Bri Robb netted four points with one ace and three digs, Weber collected 14 kills, one assist and one block and Johnson added 11 digs and two assists.
Robinson also won the junior varsity match in two sets, 25-14, 25-13.
Emma Bailey led RHS with 18 points, including six aces, 14 assists and five digs, while Robb posted five points with two aces and three digs, Macy Sutfin contributed three points and one kill, Marley McKee netted three points and Andrea McKeighan added two points and four kills.
