Lady Maroons fall at Newton in two
| Sometimes a team just plays a little bit better than you do and that was the case for Robinson High School's volleyball team Thursday night (Oct. 3).|
The Lady Maroons did not necessarily play bad, but host Newton played a bit better and handed RHS a two-set defeat in their Little Illini Conference contest, 15-25, 19-25.
"Newton is a very good team," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "I don't feel like we played a bad game tonight, we just couldn't put a ball away. Their defense was tremendous and they kept every ball alive. I am proud of the way we fought until the very end."
Emma Bailey led RHS with five points, including three aces, five digs and three assists, while Livia Smith posted five points with one ace, three kills and five digs, Kori Calvert netted four points and two digs and Andrea McKeighan contributed two points.
Robinson also lost the junior varsity match 17-25, 16-25 and the freshman match 17-25, 9-25.
In the JV match, Katie Elder led RHS with four points, including one ace, seven digs, five assists and one kill, while Ella Baxter posted four points, one kill, one block and one dig and Katrina Ramsey collected two points, 10 digs, three assists and one kill.
In the freshman match, Maci Smith led RHS with three points, including one ace, five assists and one dig, while Isabel Heidorn contributed two points, three kills and two digs and Keagan Beard netted two points.
