Short-handed Lady Maroons drop non-conference game to Newton, 43-16
A short-handed squad could not keep pace with the opposition Thursday night (Nov. 16), as Robinson High School's girls' basketball team dropped a non-conference contest to visiting Newton, 43-16.

Robinson was playing without four starters due to a school field trip, leaving the Lady Maroons with basically their junior varsity to play in the varsity contest.

"The score does not reflect the heart and passion our team put into the game," RHS head coach Sherry Bopp said. "The freshmen stepped up and did an excellent job, but they just played a complete junior varsity game as well. I am proud of their effort."
