ST. JOSEPH — Connections between hitters, setters and passers aren’t what they will eventually become, St. Joseph-Ogden volleyball coach Abby McDonald knows. The Spartans’ defensive execution, even more so, needs to improve down the road this season.
But in terms of results, that hasn’t really mattered.
■ Rantoul 2, Georgetown-Ridge Farm 1. Kaylee Spegal had 25 assists and four aces as the Eagles overcame a one-set deficit to edge the visiting Buffaloes 16-25, 25-14, 25-20. Elena Shields had 15 digs and Bree Davis had 13 kills for Rantoul.
