RHS set to start Hall of Fame later this year
Finding ways to honor athletes of the past can be a challenge for schools, but Robinson High School is doing their part is making sure they recognize the stories history of their athletic program.

RHS Athletic Director Kelly Brookman proposed the idea of a Hall of Fame at RHS to the school board several months ago and the idea was well received. Now, it is going to become a reality later this year.

Brookman announced recently that the inaugural class of the Robinson High School Hall of Fame will be inducted in December.

"This is something I talked about doing when I started as AD," Brookman said. "After we retired Meyers Leonard's jersey, it sparked the want to do something to recognize all the quality athletes and coaches we've had at RHS. I thought a Hall of Fame would be a great way to do it."

Lady Tigers thump Red Hill in opener
It may not have been perfect, but first matches rarely are.

Still, Hutsonville-Palestine's volleyball team played well in their season opener Wednesday (Aug. 28) and rolled to a two-set win over Red Hill, 25-5, 25-12.

Lady Statesmen fall at Vincennes
A valiant comeback fell just short for Lincoln Trail College's volleyball team Tuesday (Aug. 27).

The Lady Statesmen dug themselves an early hole before rallying, only to fall short in five sets of their season opener at Vincennes University, 15-25, 20-25, 29-27, 25-23, 9-15.

"Overall, I am very proud of our hard work tonight," LTC head coach Dana Goodwin said. "The girls came back after losing the first two sets in order to take it to five. We were slow at first, but once we caught on to VU's quick offense, we started getting more touches on the block and more comfortable running our own offense. This was the first time we ran a 5-1 due to a recent injury and they all adjusted very well."
