RHS XC boys win Robinson Invite & LIC
Double the meets resulted in double the wins for Robinson High School's boys' cross country team Tuesday.

An unusual set of circumstances had Robinson hosting two meets at the same time and the Maroons were able to win both of them.

Robinson was scheduled to host the Little Illini Conference Meet Tuesday, but a rainout of the Robinson Invitational earlier this month resulted in Robinson hosting that meet in conjunction with the conference meet.

"This was the first time we had combined two meets at one time, which was interesting," RHS head coach Tony Cork said. "It was also the first time that our invite had ever been postponed. We were fortunate to be able to have it. Had we not been hosting the LIC meet, we wouldn't have had the invite."

Oblong's Leggitt, Robinson's Ferguson fall short at golf Sectional
Scores were lower for both local girls' golfers at Tuesday's IHSA Class 1A Sectional, but they were still not quite good enough to earn a spot in this weekend's state meet.

Both Oblong's Erin Leggitt and Robinson's Leanna Ferguson improved on their scores from last week's regional tournament, despite less than ideal conditions at Franklin County Country Club in West Frankfort.

RHS girls' tennis falls to Mt. Zion, 8-1
Matches were close, but Robinson High school's girls' tennis team was unable to get on the positive side of enough of them to earn a victory Saturday.

The Lady Maroons played well, despite coming out on the short end of an 8-1 decision to Mt. Zion in a match that was played in Charleston.

"We had a very competitive match," RHS head coach John Ireland said. "This is probably the best we have played Mt. Zion in three years."

Maroons cruise past Olney for 39-9 win
An impressive start led Robinson High School's football team to a big win Saturday afternoon.

The Maroons celebrated Homecoming by scoring 18 first-quarter points and cruising to a 39-9 victory over visiting Olney, while clinching a playoff berth and staying in first place in the Little Illini Conference standings in the process.

"It was nice for us to get off to a fast start," RHS head coach Tim Nolen said. "It's been a while since we've done that."

Panthers edge 'Streaks for 1st win
It's not over until it's over.

That old adage rang true for Oblong High School's football team Friday night.

The Panthers jumped out to an early lead in their Little Okaw Valley Conference Southeast Division game against Martinsville, then saw it evaporate with less than a minute to play.

However, Oblong was able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with a long touchdown in the final seconds to pick up their first win of the season, 18-14.

"The kids stepped up and played well," OHS head coach Travis Reider said. "I tip my hat to Martinsville. They played well, too. Both teams fought to the very end. It was a heck of a ball game."

Pioneers drilled by Tri-County, 47-6
Two 20-point quarters was too much for Palestine-Hutsonville's football team to overcome Friday night, as they were thumped by Tri-County, 47-6, in Little Okaw Valley Conference Southeast Division play.

As they have in several games this season, the Pioneers fell behind early and could not recover.

"They are a good football team," PHS-HHS head coach Mike Monan said. "They are fundamentally sound. We had opportunities to make plays on defense, but we just couldn't execute and a lot of it was poor tackling. Offensively, we never could get anything going."

Nuttall Middle School XC boys 5th, girls 8th at IESA Sectional Meet
The season came to an abrupt end for Nuttall Middle School's cross country teams, as none of the participating runners advanced from Saturday's Sectional meet in Oakwood.

On the two-mile course at Kickapoo State Park, the NMS boys' team finished fifth in the team standings, while the girls' squad placed eighth.

Lady Maroons take down Olney in two
Another match resulted in another sweep for Robinson High School's volleyball team, but the latest one was a bit more difficult.

The Lady Maroons had their hands full with Olney in a Little Illini Conference matchup Thursday, but still managed to pick up the win in straight sets, 25-19, 26-24.

"We had a lot to overcome tonight and I am really happy with the way the girls played," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "It was a crazy week with Homecoming and everything, plus Sydney (Beard) was injured and unable to play."
