Lady Maroons down Neoga in two sets
| Gaining some momentum heading into the postseason was the goal and Robinson High School's volleyball team was able to accomplish that Thursday night (Oct. 24).|
The Lady Maroons celebrated Senior Night at RHS with a sweep of visiting Neoga in a non-conference contest, 25-20, 25-21.
"It's always great to get a win on Senior Night," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "(Seniors) Addy Paddock and Katy Powell have both worked hard for six years in this program and I am so proud of both of them. Addy had a very good night tonight, finishing with 15 digs. Unfortunately, Katy's season ended a few weeks ago with a back injury. They both have bright futures ahead of them."
Robinson started off a bit slow, as they dug themselves a 10-4 hole in the first set before rallying to take a 13-12 lead. The score stayed close throughout the rest of the set, with Robinson's biggest lead at four points at 21-17. Neoga was able to close to within 21-20, but Robinson scored the final four points to close out the set.
The second set was back-and-forth through most of it, with neither team leading by more than three until Robinson scored four straight to turn a 19-17 lead into a 23-17 advantage en route to closing out the match.
Livia Smith led RHS with 10 points, including four aces, six digs and three kills, while Emma Bailey totaled six points with three aces, 14 digs, 13 assists and two kills, Kori Calvert posted five points with one ace, five kills and two digs and Paddock recorded 15 digs and one assist.
Robinson also won the junior varsity match in three sets, 27-25, 18-25, 16-14 and the freshman match 25-6, 25-11.
In the JV match, Andrea McKeighan led RHS with 13 points, including three aces, four digs and two kills, while Katie Elder contributed seven points with three aces, 18 digs, five kills and five assists, Katrina Ramsey posted seven points with one ace, 10 digs and seven assists and Bailey Strauch collected two points, 20 digs and three kills.
In the freshman match, Lauren Crumrin led RHS with 10 points, including five aces, four kills and one dig, while Ella Baxter netted eight points with three aces, one kill and one dig and Paige Sanders recorded five points with two aces, six assists, three digs and two kills.
"I am happy that we finished the regular season on a winning note and that we have 17 wins on the year," Dean said. "We're not finished yet. We will need to get back to work and prepare for Lawrenceville. I'm proud of coach Don Corn and the JV team and coach Kali Nordquist and the fresh-soph team for finishing their seasons with wins as well."
