Lady Maroons win Robinson Invite; HP 7th
For the second straight weekend, Robinson High School's volleyball team was able to add a piece of hardware to their trophy case.

The Lady Maroons rolled through the competition Saturday at the Robinson Invitational on their way to a 4-0 record and winning the championship for the first time since they started hosting the tournament. The championship was the second already this season for the Lady Maroons, as they won the Hutsonville Invitational last weekend.

"It's great to finally win our own tournament," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "We had finished second, second, second and third, but today we finally got over the hump and took first place. Our girls played well all day."

Maroons dominate Flora in 48-0 rout
Not even Mother Nature could slow down Robinson High School's football team this weekend.

A lightning fast start had the Maroons up 25-0 seven minutes into the game, then some actual lightning followed, causing Robinson's home opener with Flora to be suspended after an hour-long delay in the first quarter Friday night.

When the game resumed Saturday afternoon, Robinson picked up right where it left off, resulting in a 48-0 whipping of the Wolves.

"It was an unusual way to get a win, but we were no different than most of the central part of Illinois this weekend," RHS head coach Tim Nolen said. "A lot of times in these situations, teams can lose focus and play sloppy, so we put an emphasis on not doing that. We came out Saturday focused, played with a lot of energy and played very well. I am very proud of the way our guys took care of business."

Robinson boys XC team finishes 4th at Chrisman Cowchip Invite
A strong all-around effort resulted in a solid finish for Robinson High School's boys' cross country team at the annual Chrisman Cowchip Classic Saturday.

The Maroons finished fourth as a team among 12 that posted team scores in the event, which has a special set of rules that differ from a normal cross country meet.

At the Chrisman meet, each team has their top seven runners compete in separate races against runners of the same number from all other teams, then the results of the top five races are added together to determine the team score. There were runners from 24 schools in the meet, but only 12 had runners in all seven races to qualify for the team standings.

Pioneers beat Westville in 2OT, 16-13
A game that took two days and couple of extra road trips to complete also needed two extra periods to determine a winner, but the end result was to Palestine-Hutsonville's football team's liking Saturday evening.

The Pioneers had to make two trips north to Westville after Friday night's scheduled game was delayed shortly after the opening kickoff and ultimately suspended due to weather.

Once the game resumed Saturday, the Pioneers saw a late lead evaporate, sending the game to overtime. Then, Palestine-Hutsonville had to come up with a pair of goal-line stands and eventually booted a field goal to pick up a 16-13 win in double-overtime.

"We played very well on both sides of the ball," PHS-HHS head coach Mike Monan said. "It was an inconvenience to make the trip twice, but it is not an excuse for not playing well. Saturday was perfect weather for football and our kids battled and found a way to get it done."
