RHS girls' tennis 3rd at Casey Doubles
Strong play up and down the line-up helped Robinson High School's girls' tennis team to a third-place finish at the Casey-Westfield Doubles Tournament Saturday (Sept. 15).

Robinson won one flight and finished second in two others on their way to totaling 135 points to finish behind Flora, who won with 140 points and Teutopolis, who was second with 139.

"We stress to the girls every year how important each game is, but it has never been as close as it was this year," RHS head coach Steve Jenkins said. "I received several compliments from other coaches and players of how well all of our girls worked together and their court movement."

Maroons lose LIC tilt at Marshall, 35-16
Momentum swings are a part of any sport and Friday night (Sept. 14)'s football game was full of them.

Unfortunately for Robinson High School's squad, too many of them went the other way.

The Maroons started about as well as they could have possibly hoped for, but they could not sustain that early momentum and ultimately dropped a 35-16 decision to Marshall in a Little Illini Conference contest.

"I tip my cap to Marshall, they rallied and did a good job coming back," RHS head coach Casey Pinnell said. "We've got some young guys that are having a tough time handling adversity. It's a learning experience for those guys, but we have to find a way to rally and make plays and we had trouble doing that tonight."

Oblong-Palestine-Hutsonville unable to score again, loses 30-0 at Watseka
Shutouts continue to be the theme for Oblong-Palestine-Hutsonville's football team, but unfortunately for OPH, they found themselves on the wrong end once again.

OPH was shut out for the third time in four games this season, dropping a 30-0 decision at Watseka Friday night (Sept. 14) in a non-conference contest.

"We have got to be able to capitalize when we have the opportunity to score," OPH head coach Mark Ambrose said. "Watseka is a good team, but they didn't push us all over the field. We forced three turnovers and we moved the ball. We even got into the red zone, but then we threw an interception."

Lady Maroons drop Flora in two sets
Strong play continued for Robinson High School's volleyball team Thursday night (Sept. 13) and it led to a conference win.

The Lady Maroons picked up a Little Illini Conference win over visiting Flora in two sets, 25-16, 25-21.

"I'm proud of all three levels for going out and beating a conference opponent tonight," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "We had a good week of practice and it carried over into the game. We served especially tough tonight. We struggled defensively in the first part of the second set, but were able to pull it together and get the win."

RHS girls' tennis beats Casey, 10-1
Another match, another win for Robinson High School's girls' tennis team.

The Lady Maroons won again in dominating fashion, downing visiting Casey-Westfield, 10-1, in a match on the courts at Washington Park Thursday (Sept. 13).

"We had several girls that played strong matches tonight," RHS head coach Steve Jenkins said. "We changed the format to an 11-point match tonight to allow for four doubles teams to play a best two of three match. We will be taking the four doubles teams to Casey this weekend for the Casey Doubles Tournament, so it was a great opportunity to continue to improve our cohesiveness working together."

Lady Statesmen bounce back with three-set win over Frontier
Better effort netted better results for Lincoln Trail College's volleyball team Thursday (Sept. 13).

One day after a disappointing loss at Kaskaskia, the Lady Statesmen rebounded to whip visiting Frontier Community College in three sets, 25-18, 25-14, 25-16.

"I am so proud of the girls for turning it around after (Wednesday's) match against Kaskaskia," LTC head coach Dana Goodwin said. "They were focused and ready to play from the beginning, they were working as a team, communicating and playing aggressive."

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.

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."
