Getting back on the mats in front of the home crowd was just what Robinson High School's wrestling team needed.

The Maroons won nine of 13 contested matches, including four by pinfall, on their way to an easy, 49-24 victory over visiting North Knox, Ind., Wednesday.

"The team wrestled great overall," RHS head coach Levi Damron said. "It was nice to get a win at home, especially after how rough it was last week (at the Champaign St. Thomas More New Year's Challenge)."

Picking up pinfall victories for Robinson were Geoffrey Harrison at 285, Tanner Keeler at 220, Aaron Rankin and 182 and Alec Keeler at 126, while Kyle Langley (106), Payton Stifle (120) and Andrew Gallagher (132) each earned a win via forfeit.

Also for RHS, Nic Iovanac scored a major decision over Roberts, 13-0, at 195, while Nick Berty pulled out a 6-4 win over Weber at 170.

Three junior varsity matches were also contested, with Landon Johnson getting the lone win for RHS via pinfall at 220.

Robinson will host the annual Robinson Duals Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m.
