LIC Champs and more
LIC Champs and more
Robinson High School's boys' cross country team collected plenty of hardware Tuesday at the Little Illini Conference Meet, including the team championship. It was the fourth straight year the Maroons have won the team title and the second year in a row they won by just two points. Robinson also had five runners (four boys, one girl) earn individual All-Conference honors in the meet. See Sports on Page 8 for more pictures and details on the meet. (Josh Brown photo)

RHS girls' tennis 4th at LIC tourney
An up and down day resulted in a middle-of-the-pack finish for Robinson High School's girls' tennis team at the Little Illini Conference Tournament Saturday (Oct. 7) in Olney.

All four entrants for the Lady Maroons won at least one match, but collectively they lost almost as many as they won on their way to a fourth-place finish.

"I was pleased with the effort from all of our girls today," RHS head coach Steve Jenkins said. "Everyone won at least one match and scored points for our team."

Maroons embarrassed at Olney in 34-0 loss
Sometimes you just get beat by a better team and sometimes you beat yourselves.

"This was a very bad loss for us," RHS head coach Tim Nolen said. "We let a very average team catch fire because of a horrible night on offense. This game was very disappointing."

Winning the close ones in conference play has proved to be a difficult proposition for Robinson High School's volleyball team.
