RHS girls' tennis beats Charleston, 8-1
Another strong performance led to another one-sided victory for Robinson High School's girls' tennis team Wednesday (Sept. 12), as they cruised past Charleston, 8-1.

"The final match score was not an indication of how close and competitive the matches were tonight," RHS head coach Steve Jenkins said.

Lady Statesmen scuffle in three-set loss at Kaskaskia
A slow start proved too much for Lincoln Trail College's volleyball team to overcome Wednesday (Sept. 12) and the end result was a three-set loss at Kaskaskia College, 14-25, 16-25, 23-25.

"From the beginning, the girls were not motivated to play," LTC head coach Dana Goodwin said. "By the line, they showed up in the third set, it was too late. Our offense, nor our defense, were as strong as we usually are, resulting in several errors and easy shots. We have a lot to focus on for tonight's match against Frontier if we want to pull out a win."

Lady Tigers score non-conference win over Casey-Westfield in two sets
A much better effort led to a win for Hutsonville-Palestine's volleyball team Tuesday (Sept. 11).

The Lady Tigers snapped a two-match skid by picking up a tightly-contested, 25-23, 25-18 win over Casey-Westfield in non-conference action.

"I'm super proud of the girls tonight for coming out to play and not giving up," HHS-PHS head coach Shandy Matthews said. "They kept working and never quit. But, we seem to have this thing that when we get up by a few points, we let up and we can't do that."

Lady Maroons beat Lady Tigers in two
County foes took to the volleyball court against each other Monday night (Sept. 10) and it was the road team that came out victorious.

Robinson traveled north to take on Hutsonville-Palestine and came away with a 25-14, 25-23 win in the non-conference contest.

"We played real well in the first set," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "We were on in just about every aspect of our game. The second set we were a little sloppier, we had some net violations, we missed four serves, and Hutsonville made some good plays. I'm proud of our girls for hanging in there and pulling out the win in the end."

"We just weren't ready to play the first set," HHS-PHS head coach Shandy Matthews said. "I'm not sure what is going on. The second set was much better. We played together and worked as a team, but couldn't pull it off."

"We played a good game and got the win," OHS head coach Pam Johnson said. "Everything starts with a good pass which led to a good hitting game tonight. Our serves are hitting the right zones."

Maroons down Flora, 24-12, for 1st win
How you win is not as important as if you win and Robinson High School's football team can attest to that.

The Maroons may not have played their best, but they found a way to get in the win column for the first time this season, picking up a 24-12 win over Flora in a Little Illini Conference contest (Sept. 7).

"I am proud of the kids, proud of the coaches, proud of the managers, proud of the athletic trainer for getting through that dogfight," RHS head coach Casey Pinnell said. "We had to fight through adversity all night, but the kids found a way to answer and finish. It feels pretty great to get this win."

OPH falls to Cerro Gordo-Bement, 21-0
For the third straight week, Oblong-Palestine-Hutsonville's football team has been involved in a shutout.

Unfortunately, OPH has been on the wrong side of two of those, including Friday night (Sept. 7)'s 21-0 loss to Cerro Gordo-Bement in Palestine.

"You have got to put points on the board to win football games and we had trouble doing that," OPH head coach Mark Ambrose.

RHS girls' tennis beats Mt. Carmel, 6-0
Rain shortened Robinson High School's girls' tennis team's home match Thursday night (Sept. 6), but it did not put a damper on a dominating performance.

The Lady Maroons rolled to the rain-shortened win over Mt. Carmel, 6-0, as the match was called following the conclusion of singles play.

All six wins for RHS came in straight sets, with none of the opponents winning more than five points in any match.

"Mt. Carmel has a young team and are rebuilding their program," RHS head coach Steve Jenkins said. "When playing a team of lesser experience it is easy to let up, but our girls came out strong in the beginning of singles play and didn't let up."

Lady Maroons cruise past Red Hill
Another dominating performance gained Robinson High School's volleyball team a win to start conference play Thursday (Sept. 6).

The Lady Maroons rolled to a win over Red Hill, 25-7, 25-12, to open Little Illini Conference play, which was their third win in as many tries over the Lady Salukis already this season.

"It's good to start the conference season off with a win," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "We were not quite as sharp at times as I'd hoped, but we did a lot of things well."
