Robinson girls' tennis team beats Newton for second win this week
An abbreviated match did not deter Robinson High School's girls' tennis team from picking up another win this week.

The Lady Maroons picked up their second win this week with a 4-1 victory at Newton Tuesday in a make-up match from a rainout earlier in the season.

"When we play at Newton, we have no crossover matches," RHS head coach John Ireland said. "Singles play went very well for us tonight. Both singles players played good tennis and were able to get the win.

In doubles action we were able to get two of the three doubles to secure the win. All matches were very competitive."

OHS beats HP at LOVC SE tourney
Once again, it took three sets to decide a match between county rivals Oblong and Hutsonville-Palestine on the volleyball court.

Both teams made the long trek to Heritage High School in Broadlands Tuesday to play their consolation bracket game in the Little Okaw Valley Conference Southeast Division Tournament and the outcome was similar to their regular season meeting a week prior.

The fifth-seeded Lady Panthers jumped on top early, only to see the sixth-seeded Lady Tigers roar back to take the second set, but Oblong answered back to take the third set for a 25-15, 21-25, 25-17 victory.

"County rivals met again and once again it was a competitive game," OHS head coach Pam Johnson said.

"We have got to quit spotting the other team four points on serve receive at the start of each set and settle in," HHS-PHS head coach Jolene Crippes-Callaway said. "The second set we played brilliant and hustled well, but in the third we spotted them seven points before we could side out. It's not a matter of skill, it's our mental game that is hindering us. Oblong played well enough to capitalize on our errors and take the match."

Lady Maroons beat Lawrenceville in 2

"We had a real nice night in all aspects of our game tonight," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "We passed extremely well and our serve kept them off balance."

RHS girls' tennis beats Paris, 8-1
Another solid performance led to another win for Robinson High School's girls' tennis team Monday.

The Lady Maroons won all but one match, with all the victories coming in straight sets, on the way to an 8-1 win over visiting Paris.

"This was our second match with Paris and we played a very excellent match against them," RHS head coach John Ireland said. "We had some very strong performances in singles and that allowed us to get some JV players some varsity experience tonight in doubles. Anytime we can get some varsity experience for other players it is a great opportunity to take advantage of it."

Panthers fall short to Tri-County, 32-18
Sometimes the ball bounces your way and sometimes it doesn't.

Oblong High School's football team fell victim to some unfortunate bounces Friday night and it led to the spoiling of their Homecoming with a 32-18 loss to Tri-County in Little Okaw Valley Conference Southeast Division play.

"We played well at times, but we also made some mistakes that hurt us," OHS head coach Travis Reider said. "They capitalized on our mistakes and we couldn't capitalize on theirs. That was the difference in the game."

Palestine-Hutsonville shut out by Cumberland, 46-0, in LOVC SE play
For the fourth time this season, Palestine-Hutsonville's football team failed to put any points on the board and the result each time was a lopsided loss.

RHS XC boys 3rd, girls 13th in own Invite
Another strong effort had Robinson High School's cross country team near the front of the field, but it was not enough to bring home the trophy at the annual Robinson Invitational Thursday.

The Maroons ran well, but could not match the effort of a strong Tolono Unity team that ran away from the rest of the field. Robinson came in third with 89 points, which was just behind Charleston, who had 85. However, Tolono Unity posted 26 points to easily win the meet. Mattoon was fourth at 128 and Olney finished fifth at 167, followed by Marshall (235), Teutopolis (245), Effingham (257), Sullivan-Okaw Valley (262), Fairfield (302), Newton (329), Paris (364), Lawrenceville (366), Cumberland (388), Neoga (390), Altamont (398), Mt. Carmel (423), Dieterich (523), Hutsonville-Palestine (533) and Cowden-Herrick (546). Casey-Westfield and Effingham St. Anthony also competed, but did not have enough runners for a team score.

"We ran very well both boys and girls," RHS head coach Tony Cork said. "We had at least 75 percent of our kids with career or season-best times. To have the Junior Olympics just finish a couple hours before we competed says a lot about the ability of the kids to motivate themselves. I know many of them participated in a number of Junior Olympic events."
