RHS boys tennis falls to Mattoon, 6-3
Sports Editor

A better effort was still not good enough to net Robinson High School's boys' tennis team a win Tuesday.

The Maroons played better against a strong Mattoon team, but still lost the match, 6-3.

"Mattoon is a very deep team, so we knew we needed to play well to stay in this match," RHS head coach Tom Buchanan said. "Mattoon has beaten St. Anthony and Charleston and both those teams beat us 0-9. We haven't been playing our best the last two outings and we needed it tonight. Our juniors came through with each picking up a win in either singles or doubles. As a whole, we did a good job battling at every position. We were a bit stronger than them at the top, winning both No. 1 and 2 singles, but Mattoon doesn't drop much from 1-6."

In singles, Robinson picked up wins at Nos. 1 and 2, as Brennan Buchanan defeated Hunter Levingston in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3, while Curtis White squeaked past Nick Freeman, 7-5, 6-4.

Meanwhile, the Maroons also got a win at No. 2 doubles, as White and Nick Sandschafer outlasted Blake Masse and Gabe Stoll in three sets, 6-4, 4-6, 11-9.

The remainder of the singles matches and No. 3 doubles were all decided in straight sets, while Buchanan and Dylan White lost in three sets at No. 1 doubles, 6-1, 1-6, 4-10.

"I was pleased how we battled in singles and then No. 1 and 2 doubles each played well," Buchanan said. "Dylan and Nick put together a complete match, winning in a tiebreaker. This might be the best doubles I've seen them play. They defeated a good team."

Robinson (4-11) will play in the Little Illini Conference Tournament at Casey Saturday.
