Thomas Robinson pounded 6 kills, and Evan Borden and Martin Niemczewski each had five, as Vernon Hills' boys volleyball team stayed undefeated with a 25-23, 25-21 win over host Warren in a North Suburban Conference opener Wednesday night.

Robinson also served 3 aces, Max Spiglanin was in on 7 blocks and Ryan Opitz dished out 17 assists.

"On a night when our passing was off, and when we struggled with Warren's tough jump serves, our blocking really made the difference," coach Chris Curry said after his Cougars improved to 8-0. "Max Spiglanin was so strong at the net, and Ryan Opitz made great decisions with some tough passes we were giving him."
