Maroons go 2-2 at Robinson Duals
A day of close competition resulted in a split for Robinson High School's wrestling team at the annual Robinson Duals Saturday, Jan. 7.

The Maroons wrestled four matches - three of which that were decided by two points or less - and came away with wins in two of them.

Robinson picked up victories over Mt. Carmel and St. Joseph-Ogden, while losing competitive matches to Lawrenceville and Cumberland.

"I thought we defended our home court very well Saturday," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "I had hoped that we could keep each of the dual scores close, but going in I felt we were the underdogs in every dual. The kids found a way to get us two wins in very close contests and we came close to catching Lawrenceville and they have some pretty tough wrestlers. We all knew that Cumberland would likely dominate the weekend, but even in that loss I think our kids battled as hard as they could."

Panthers fall short to Red Hill, 69-62
A hot start was not enough to put Oblong High School's boys' basketball team in the win column Tuesday night (Jan. 10).

The Panthers came out of the gate blazing and held a double-digit lead a little over two minutes into the game, but the fire was quickly extinguished and Oblong struggled on both ends of the floor the rest of the way in a 69-62 loss to Red Hill in non-conference action.

"I am very frustrated with that effort," OHS head coach Gregg Brooks said. "We didn't shoot the ball well, we didn't run the offense, we didn't play defense, we didn't rebound well, we didn't do anything. We can't beat anybody playing like that."
