Everyone got into the act for Robinson High School's boys' tennis team and the result was an easy win.
The Maroons used 10 different players to pick up seven wins, many of them in convincing fashion, on their way to a 7-0 win at Newton April 14.
"There are times in the past where we have played down to the competition, but we stayed focused tonight and played our game," RHS head coach Tom Buchanan said. "Newton is a very young team and we came out and played well." Friday, April 22, 2016
An early deficit was too much for Robinson High School's baseball team to overcome April 14.
The Maroons struggled early and never could catch up in an 8-3 loss to Casey-Westfield in a Little Illini Conference contest that was played at Robinson, but was originally scheduled to be played in Casey. As a result, Robinson was the visiting team for the game.
Another dominant performance led Robinson High School's boys' track team to another win April 12.
The Maroons won 14 of 18 events and scored twice as many points as their nearest competitor in winning a three-team meet. Robinson racked up 144 points to win the meet, while Olney was second with 72 and Palestine-Hutsonville came in third with 44.
