Lady Maroons roll past Red Hill in two
| Another dominating performance gave Robinson High School's volleyball team another win as they opened Little Illini Conference play Thursday (Sept. 7).|
The Lady Maroons rolled to a two-set win over Red Hill, 25-13, 25-8, in a match played at Nuttall Middle School due to work being done to repair the damaged floor in the RHS gym.
In the first set, Robinson jumped out to a 4-0 lead and never looked back. The Lady Maroons pushed their lead to 12-1 and eventually 23-6 before a late surge by Red Hill closed the gap.
The second set was more of the same after the teams traded points early. Robinson had an 11-point run to take a 13-2 lead and cruised after that.
Amy McGahey led RHS with 17 points, including three aces and three kills, while Sydni Bailey posted seven points with three aces and two assists. Malia Gunn contributed four points, three kills, three assists and one dig, Laini Wright collected a team-high 10 assists along with two digs and Amber Hillard netted a team-high five kills and also had two digs and one block.
"We played well in all aspects tonight," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "Amy had a big night serving and all of our hitters hit well."
Robinson also coasted to a 25-13, 25-3 win in the junior varsity match.
Bri Robb led RHS with 15 points, including eight aces and one assist, while Kaitlyn Stephens netted five points with two aces. Katie Hartke posted four points with two aces, Katy Powell added four points with one ace and two digs and Kenzie Wisdom recorded three points and three kills.
