Robinson boys' tennis team finishes 4th at Little Illini tourney
Missed opportunities cost Robinson High School's boys' tennis team a better finish at the Little Illini Conference Tournament in Flora Saturday (May 12).

The Maroons came up short in several close matches, which led them to a fourth-place finish in the six-team field. Robinson finished with 13.5 points, placing them ahead of Newton (8) and Casey-Westfield (0). Olney won the tournament with 27 points, followed by Paris (22) and Flora (14.5).

"As a team we played well at times, but Saturday was a day of missed opportunities," RHS head coach Tom Buchanan said. "This year, the LIC was very competitive. Most years the tournament is over by 3:30 (about six hours). This year, with all of the close matches and all of the three set matches - it took three more hours. We lost all three of the three set matches. In each, we won the first set and were up in the third."
