RHS wrestlers win two at Shelbyville
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."
