Spartans defeat Panthers


After a successful weekend tournament in Mahomet that saw the SJO girls’ volleyball team capture third place with a 4-1 record on the day, the Spartans were back in action on Tuesday evening, when they welcomed the PBL Panthers to St. Joseph for a non-conference match.
The Spartans were victorious on the evening, defeating the Panthers in 2 games by scores of 26-24 and 25-16.
Leading the way statistically for SJO was Abbi Burnett, who had 9 kills and 1 assist and 1 dig.  Bree Trimble also had a good match, notching 5 kills and 1 assist, while she recorded 7 digs as well.  Emily Bigger also came up strong, with 2 kills and 8 assists and 8 digs.  
Emory Erickson had one kill and 2 assists, while libero Eve Owens had 3 aces and 6 digs.  Rylee Walsh continues to put up strong stat lines night in and night out, recording 1 ace, and 8 assists and 8 digs.  
Sarah Acklin had three kills, while Sydney Kelso also performed well, with one ace and three assists, to go along with 6 digs.  
The Spartans will enjoy a little bit of a break, as they do not take the court again until Thursday, when they welcome the St. Thomas More Sabers to St. Joseph.  
SJO carries a 9-2 record into next week’s action, and are on track to have another strong run once the inaugural Illini Prairie Conference action begins later this month.
