Lady Maroons fall to Marshall on Sr. Night
| Win number 20 has become pretty elusive for Robinson High School's volleyball team.|
The Lady Maroons were denied for the third time this week in their quest to reach the 20-win plateau Thursday, with their latest loss being to Marshall in two sets, 23-25, 19-25, in Little Illini Conference play and spoiling Senior Night in the process.
"I really feel like in our losses Monday and Tuesday that we played well but just came up short," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "Tonight we did not play well at all. Our hitting was very poor and we will have to get that fixed if we are going to be successful in the regionals."
Courtney Callaway led the Lady Maroons with five points, including one ace, 16 assists, five digs and two kills, while Kinsey Fear netted five points, two digs and one assist. Kari Bopp totaled two points with one ace, 10 digs, three kills and two assists, Leah Avery posted two points, six kills and six digs, Ashton Richey contributed two points, six digs, two blocks and one kill, Karnell Bowen added two points with one ace and three digs and Sonnie Givens had seven kills, two blocks and one dig.
"Leah played real well and kept us in it in the first set," Dean said. "It was just one of those nights, we'll be better next week."
Robinson did win the junior varsity match in two sets, 25-15, 25-19, to finish their season with a 14-4 record.
Allison McGahey led RHS with nine points, including three aces, eight digs and one assist, while Parker Corder totaled eight points with three aces, eight digs, six kills and one assist. Olivia Musch posted eight points with one ace, six kills, four digs and one assist, Lexi Gower netted three points, 12 digs, 10 assists and three kills and Kalee Childress added three points, two kills and two digs.
