Despite a line-up that was less than full strength, Robinson High School's wrestling team rolled to a pair of wins Tuesday (Jan. 8) in matches at Shelbyville.
Robinson was a bit short-handed, but still managed to pick up wins over Hillsboro (48-29) and Shelbyville (42-21) in a their two dual matches.
"Hillsboro is a team that seems to be rebuilding this year, while Shelbyville's line-up is still pretty thin right now, so they have trouble filling all the weight classes," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "The surprise for us was that we also had some last-minute holes in our line-up we are not accustomed to having. Even with all the forfeits, most of the kids we took got to wrestle and got some pretty decent mat time."
Continued lack of offense continues to hamper Robinson High School's girls' basketball team.
The Lady Maroons were held to single digits in three of four quarters, while they gave up 14 or more in three of four quarters en route to a 58-29 loss at Mt. Carmel in a non-conference contest (Jan. 8).
Palestine-Hutsonville's girls' basketball team stayed close for three quarters, but a rough fourth quarter halted any chance the Lady Pioneers had of picking up their first win of the season Monday night (Jan. 7).
The Lady Pioneers returned to action after nearly a month off and suffered a 54-30 loss at Union-Dugger, Ind., in a non-conference contest.
A slow start prevented Oblong High School's boys' basketball team from having a chance to create a winning streak.
Coming off their first win of the season in their last outing, the Panthers fell behind early and never recovered in a 50-39 loss at Arthur-Lovington-Atwood-Hammond in non-conference play Friday night (Jan. 4).
