Lady Maroons lose to Red Hill, 6-3
| A tight game got away from Robinson High School's softball team late and the end result was a disappointing loss in conference play.|
The Lady Maroons held an early lead, coughed it up in the middle inning before rallying to tie it, only to give up a late rally en route to a 6-3 loss to Red Hill in Little Illini Conference play (April 9).
Robinson held a 2-1 lead after one inning, but Red Hill answered with two runs in the third to take a 2-1 lead. The Lady Maroons responded with a run in the sixth to tie the game, only for Red Hill to counter with a three-run seventh to retake the lead and hold on for the win.
Malia Gunn led RHS at the plate with a double and a run scored, while Katy Powell singled and knocked in a pair of runs. Maddie Morris doubled and singled, Katelyn Smith singled and scored a run, Jaedyn Johnson added a base hit, Madi Staley knocked in a run and Bri Robb scored a run.
Tess Krause suffered the loss on the mound, allowing six runs on 13 hits, while walking one and striking out seven in six-plus innings. Makenzee Legg worked the final inning, giving up a hit and striking out one.
