Breaking away
Breaking away
Robinson's Mason Shew (35) heads upfield after catching a pass from quarterback Bucky Stevens as a pair of Mt. Carmel defenders run into each other during the first quarter of Saturday's Class 3A playoff quarterfinal game. Shew would break away for a 79-yard touchdown to give the Maroons an early 7-0 advantage. Robinson held a 15-8 lead at halftime, but was outscored 28-14 in the second half en route to a 36-29 loss.

Maroons fall short to Mt. Carmel, 36-29
Momentum swings are a part of every game and there were plenty of them Saturday afternoon between Robinson High School's football team and Mt. Carmel in their Class 3A Playoff quarterfinal game.

Big plays and lead changes were constant throughout the game, but unfortunately for the Maroons, a few too many of those went the way of the Golden Aces, sending Robinson to a 36-29 defeat to bring their spectacular season to a close.

"This was a great football game," RHS head coach Tim Nolen said. "Our kids fought and played very hard and so did Mt. Carmel. We proved to ourselves and to them that we can step on the field and play with them and that says a lot about where our football program is."

Statesmen hold off Danville Area, 66-63
Three close games have all resulted in wins for Lincoln Trail College's men's basketball team, but Thursday's was the closest to date.

"It was not a work of Picasso," LTC head coach Mike Ray said. "But, when the scoreboard is hanging and you are on the heavy side, you've accomplished what you wanted to."

Tennison finishes 18th at XC state
A career-best performance is what Robinson's Noah Tennison was going to need to earn all-state honors at the IHSA Cross Country State Finals Saturday and that's exactly what he gave.

Tennison ran the fastest time of his career and earn all-state honors by finishing 18th in a field of 205 runners with a time of 15:24.43, 16 seconds faster than his previous best time. His time also places him in the top-five among best times in program history.

"You hope for the best and sometimes it works out that way," RHS head coach Tony Cork said. "It was a perfect course to do it on, the competition was great and the results were incredible."

Maroons dominate Marshall for 27-7 win
Dominant performances have been the norm for Robinson High School's football team for much of this season and that trend continued Saturday afternoon.

For the second straight week, the Maroons dominated their playoff opponent, which was also a team they had defeated previously in the regular season.

The script went much like the first meeting Robinson had with Marshall, as the Maroons jumped out to an early lead, withstood a surge from the Lions, then pulled away late, resulting in a 27-7 win in the second round of the Class 3A Playoffs at Crosby Field.

"We did almost exactly what we wanted to do in this ball game," RHS head coach Tim Nolen said. "Our offensive line and our backs did their job and our defense shut their offense down."
