RHS girls' tennis falls to Flora, 8-1
A rough night on the court resulted in a lopsided loss for Robinson High School's girls' tennis team Thursday, Sept. 22.

Robinson was able to pick up just one win in doubles play on their way to an 8-1 loss to visiting Flora.

"We went against a very strong Flora team that had depth all the way down the line," RHS assistant coach John Ireland said. "We had good showings with many matches going to deuce in many games. At the 3-6 spots our strokes continue to improve throughout the year. It's great to see the players getting more confident and hitting stronger with improved placement."
