RHS boys' tennis beats Newton, 7-0
Everyone got into the act for Robinson High School's boys' tennis team and the result was an easy win.

The Maroons used 10 different players to pick up seven wins, many of them in convincing fashion, on their way to a 7-0 win at Newton April 14.

"There are times in the past where we have played down to the competition, but we stayed focused tonight and played our game," RHS head coach Tom Buchanan said. "Newton is a very young team and we came out and played well."
