Lady Maroons lose to Casey-Westfield at LIC tourney, 56-36
The effort was there, but that unfortunately did not net the results Robinson High School's girls' basketball team was hoping for Wednesday night (Jan. 17).

The ninth-seeded Lady Maroons took to the court with a chance to reach the consolation championship game of Little Illini Conference Tournament, but a slow start prevented them from keeping pace with fourth-seeded Casey-Westfield, resulting in a 56-36 loss in the consolation semifinals at Casey-Westfield High School.

"(Casey) has been in school the last two days and we haven't, so that meant our practices couldn't be mandatory," RHS head coach Sherry Bopp said. "Plus, (starting point guard) Ella (Florkowski) is still out with a concussion. We had a rough start, but I implored them not to give up and leave everything on the court. I told them to show Casey we are not the same team they played at the beginning of the year and they did just that."

The Statesmen struggled once again to put the ball in the basket and the end result was a 74-47 loss to Kaskaskia College in a Great Rivers Athletic Conference contest.

RHS wrestlers go 1-2 at Vandalia Duals
Results were not what they were hoping for, but the day was not a total loss for Robinson High School's wrestling team at the Vandalia Duals Saturday (Jan. 13).

The Maroons did not wrestle as well as they had hoped, but still managed to come away with a 1-2 record in their three matches.

Robinson opened with a 72-6 loss to sixth-ranked Vandalia, then dropped a 56-21 decision to Monticello before finishing the day with a 42-40 win over Murphysboro.

"Ironically, I thought our best wrestling of the day was against Vandalia," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "Vandalia just does not have any gaps in their line-up and we did not embarrass ourselves despite the lopsided team score. I thought that we might have caught up with Monticello this year, but we did not show it today. Momentum plays a role in all sports and we came out flat against Monticello. We got the win against Murphysboro, but it was not really a very good performance."
