MAROA -- Maroa-Forsyth's volleyball team got off to a slow start against Argenta-Oreana Tuesday but once their offense started rolling they went on to the two set victory 25-20, 25-17. 

"Once we got going, I thought we moved the ball around well and we were able to find the open spots on the court," Maroa-Forsyth coach Mallory White said. 

Reese Bobitt led the Trojans with seven kills and Jaidyn Sowa had six.

Amaya Fox had five kills for the Bombers (6-3) and Camilyn Newbanks had five assists. 

Maroa's libero Annelise Sparks had 31 digs in the victory. 

Mount Zion def. Charleston 25-20, 25-21

CHARLESTON -- Mount Zion's passing troubles allowed Charleston to test the Braves Tuesday but they still held on for the two-set victory. 

"The girls competed well. Our passing was a little off, which didn’t allow our offense to flow very well," Mount Zion coach Jay McAtee said. "Charleston runs a very unique offense, and it’s real hard to defend.”

Dayna Kennedy, Reiley Drake and Karlee McAtee each had six kills for the Braves (6-1, 2-0 Apollo). 

Ali Vaughn recorded 25 assists and Caitlyn Maley had 16 digs, earning praise from her coach. 

"Caitlyn did a good job on defense. We had a lot of digs, keeping the ball in play," McAtee said. 


Normal University 7, MacArthur 0

DECATUR -- Camden Brown scored two goals for Normal University as they defeated MacArthur Tuesday. The Generals (3-3) were held scoreless but coach Alex Wegmann was not displeased by his team's performance. 

"Normal is a very good team. Each individual played well and having to play two games in two days makes a big difference," he said. "We just have to turn corners, get back in shape quickly, pick up the page and win again."

Other scorers for the Pioneers included J.D. Kelley, Thomas Feely, Jarrett Cornejo, Mason Whittman and Jayden Redd. 

MacArthur goalie Brendan Foster recorded 16 saves. 

St. Teresa 6, Williamsville 1

WILLIAMSVILLE -- Edgar Onate scored a hat trick as St. Teresa bounced back from its tie to St. Edward over the weekend to beat Williamsville on Tuesday. 

Along with Onate's three goals, Massimo Evelti, John Moody, and Jayveon Boatman each scored for the Bulldogs (8-0-1). 

"We need to be mentally prepared to play any opponent and focus on the big picture," St. Teresa soccer coach Davis Wegmann said. "We know what we want for the end of the season. We need to learn to not become complacent. Complacency is the downfall of a lot of teams trying to reach their full potential."
