Lady Maroons beat Casey-Westfield in 3
| A tough battle on the road ended with Robinson High School's volleyball team picking up a hard-fought win in three sets, 25-20, 23-25, 25-15, at Casey-Westfield in Little Illini Conference play (Oct. 1).|
"It was a hard fought conference win tonight," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "We fell behind in each of the first two sets. We were able to overcome in the first, but fell short in the second. The third set was close for a while, but we went on a big run to pull away.'
Emma Bailey led RHS with 12 points, including one ace, 14 assists, six digs and one kill, while Livia Smith posted eight points, eight digs, seven kills and one block. Andrea McKeighan contributed eight points with three aces, five digs and two kills, Katrina Ramsey totaled seven points with three aces, seven digs, two kills and two assists and Kori Calvert recorded six points with two aces, eight kills, three digs and one assist.
"We've had a lot of injuries lately and it's given the opportunity for other players to step up," Dean said. "Andrea and Ella Baxter did that tonight. Andrea had a big serve run to end the first set, while Ella played one front row rotation in the third set and had four kills. It was great to see each of them have success at the varsity level."
In the junior varsity match, Robinson lost in three sets, 25-21, 21-25, 9-15.
