HP's Wilber to play softball at Kaskaskia
A dream come true is how Palestine High School senior Shaelyn Wilber described her earning a chance to play college softball.

The Hutsonville-Palestine standout recently signed a letter-of-intent to continue her softball career after high school at Kaskaskia College in Centralia.

"Ever since I started playing travel softball, I knew I wanted to play college softball," Wilber said. "Kaskaskia has a nice college, they have my major, the coach was nice and it's not too far from home."

Robinson wrestlers drop season opening dual to Effingham, 48-31
There was good and bad for Robinson High School's wrestling team in their season opener Tuesday night (Nov. 29).

Robinson managed to win six matches during their dual match with Effingham, but they also lost five matches via pin and another three by forfeit, resulting in a 48-31 loss.

"Basically we wrestled the same Effingham team we faced last year and the match revealed that we have more work to do, but the match also marked a glimpse at what is possible if we continue to work," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "Seven of our kids wrestled their first ever varsity match Tuesday night and of that group, four of the kids wrestled their first very first match. We had a nice group of fans in the stands Tuesday and I hope they saw what I saw and that is a whole bunch of kids with a lot of possibilities if we continue to work hard."

Maroons finish second at St. Anthony
Two games against two tough teams resulted in a win and a loss for Robinson High School's boys' basketball team over the weekend, but the Maroons still came out of the Effingham St. Anthony Turkey Tournament feeling pretty good about themselves.

Robinson got over a tough hurdle in previous years, as they outlasted Breese Central Friday (Nov. 25) in overtime, 56-50, to finish pool play undefeated. That sent the Maroons to the championship game (Nov. 26), where they nearly erased a 20-point deficit in the fourth quarter, only to fall short to Effingham, 73-67.
