Robinson wrestlers split at Shelbyville
It was a mix of good and bad for Robinson High School's wrestling team at their triangular meet in Shelbyville Tuesday, Jan. 10.

The Maroons split their two matches, winning one in dominating fashion, but not wrestling well in their loss. Robinson won 12 of 14 matches by either pin or forfeit in a 72-12 win over Hillsboro, but lost all seven contested matches by pin in a 48-36 loss to Shelbyville.

"Of the matches we did wrestle against Hillsboro we pretty much dominated," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "However, our dual against Shelbyville was a very different story."

Panthers fall short to Red Hill, 69-62
A hot start was not enough to put Oblong High School's boys' basketball team in the win column Tuesday night (Jan. 10).

The Panthers came out of the gate blazing and held a double-digit lead a little over two minutes into the game, but the fire was quickly extinguished and Oblong struggled on both ends of the floor the rest of the way in a 69-62 loss to Red Hill in non-conference action.

"I am very frustrated with that effort," OHS head coach Gregg Brooks said. "We didn't shoot the ball well, we didn't run the offense, we didn't play defense, we didn't rebound well, we didn't do anything. We can't beat anybody playing like that."
