RHS girls' tennis 4th at LIC tourney
Sports Editor

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.

Robinson finished the day with 14.5 points, which was behind Flora, who won with 20.5 and Newton and Olney, who tied for second with 15.5 points apiece. Casey-Westfield (13.5) and Paris (6.5) completed the field.

"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."

The best finish for RHS came in doubles, where the team of Andrea Schalburg and Emma Goodman finished third with a 2-1 record. After receiving a first-round bye as a result of being the fourth overall seed, Schalburg and Goodman defeated Zumbahlen and Woods of Newton 6-4, 6-4 to reach the semifinals. In that match, Schalburg and Goodman would lose to Flora's Jennings and Shelton, 2-6, 2-6, but they rebounded to beat Flora's Himelick and Darrough in the third-place match, 5-7, 7-5, 6-4.

Also in doubles, Meredith Berty and Alysha Clements won their first match over Brown and Rhoads of Paris, 6-4, 6-3, but lost their next two matches.

In singles, Sarah Staller went 2-1 to finish in a tie for fifth, while Mia Hargis was seventh with a 2-2 record.

Hargis picked up wins over Olney's Steber (6-4, 6-3) and Mathews of Paris (6-1, 6-3), while after losing her first match, Staller beat Casey-Westfield's Herrera (6-7(6-8), 6-2, 10-3) and followed up with a win over her teammate, Hargis (4-6, 6-2, 10-6).
