It was a rough night on the court for Robinson High School's girls' tennis team Tuesday (Oct. 1), as they dropped a dual match to Teutopolis, 8-1, to snap a seven-match winning streak.
"I was hoping that we could win a few more individual matches tonight, but sometimes the game score is not indicative of how well a match is played," RHS head coach Steve Jenkins said. "Teutopolis is a very experienced and skilled team that doesn't make too many unforced errors. Our girls had several long points, sometimes 15-20 shots with their opponents before a point was won."
Despite being competitive in several matches, the Lady Maroons were only able to record one win, which came from Ella Dorfmueller at No. 4 singles.
In a junior varsity match, Robinson came out on the short end of a 9-7 decision.
Winning for RHS were Lisa Henry, Valerie Wright (twice) and Kayla Guyer in singles and the doubles teams of Destanee Liston and Emma Bogard, Henry and Bogard and Alana Herr and Edy Treadway.
