RHS wrestlers win four of six recently
A competitive day of wrestling saw Robinson High School's wrestling team go .500 on the day at the annual Robinson Duals event Saturday (Jan. 6).

The Maroons went 2-2 as a team in their four matches, which saw strong performances by several individuals throughout the day.

"We knew that every team here this weekend was fairly even with Mt. Carmel being the favorite," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "I knew that we would really have to wrestle well to win any duals against these teams and I might have settled for 2-2 before the day began. However, now I think that if we had wrestled with a little more confidence we might have had an opportunity to have done better."
