Sports Editor

Nearly two handfuls of Robinson High School athletes were recognized for their exploits on the diamond this spring by being named to one of the All-Little Illini Conference teams announced recently.

Robinson had six baseball players named, along with three softball players, with six of those being First Team selections.

The selections were based on the players' statistics and performances in conference games only.

On the baseball side, Robinson had four First Team selections - sophomores Brayden Childress and Kade Lassen and seniors Chase Johnson and Ethan Williams.

For the season, Childress batted .400 overall (24-60), including three home runs, seven doubles, 19 runs scored and 16 runs batted in. In conference games, Childress hit .444 (8-18) with one home run, one double, five runs batted in and three runs scored.

On the mound, Childress was 4-3 with a 3.16 ERA in seven games, allowing 17 earned runs with 14 walks and 54 strikeouts in 37.2 innings of work. In conference play, he was 3-1 with a 1.99 ERA in four games, allowing just seven earned runs while walking six and striking out 41 in 24.2 innings.

Lassen hit .337 overall (28-83) for the Maroons with three home runs, six doubles, 32 runs scored and 16 runs batted in. In conference play, he hit .308 (8-26) with one home run, 11 runs scored and three runs batted in.

On the mound, Lassen was 1-0 with a 1.11 ERA in three games, all of them non-conference, giving up one earned run, walking one and striking out seven in 6.1 innings.

Meanwhile, Johnson hit .296 overall (24-81) with eight doubles, 19 runs scored and 13 runs batted in, while in conference play he hit .500 (12-24) with four doubles, eight runs scored and seven runs batted in.

Johnson did appear on the mound in two non-conference games, posting a 1-0 record with a 7.88 ERA in 2.2 innings.

For the season, Williams posted a .330 batting average (29-88) with three home runs, seven doubles, 25 runs batted in and 19 runs scored.

In conference play, Williams hit .370 (10-27) with a double, 10 runs batted in and five runs scored.

Named to the Second Team for RHS was senior Evan Hale, who posted a .302 overall batting average (13-43) with five doubles, seven runs scored and five runs batted in. In conference games, Hale hit .500 (8-16) with two doubles, four runs batted in and four runs scored.

Another senior, Lance Wesner, was an Honorable Mention selection. Wesner batted .337 overall (30-89) with five home runs, seven doubles, 25 runs batted in and 19 runs scored. In conference play, Wesner hit .231 (6-26) with one home run, one double, seven runs batted in and seven runs scored.

Wesner also appeared on the mound in two games, totaling two innings, posting a 0.00 ERA. He allowed just one hit and struck out three of the six batters he faced overall, including one in his scoreless inning in conference play.

On the softball side, senior Malia Gunn and junior Jaedyn Johnson were both First Team selections.

Gunn hit .464 (39-84) overall with three home runs, eight doubles, two triples, 33 runs scored and 20 runs batted in. She finished her RHS career with 29 home runs and 150 hits.

Meanwhile, Johnson posted a .433 average this season (39-90) with one home run, nine doubles, 25 runs scored and 16 runs batted in.
