RHS girls' tennis edges Mt. Carmel
Close matches were the theme for Robinson High School's girls' tennis team in their match with Mt. Carmel Thursday.

Four of the nine matches went to three sets and all nine were closely contested. Fortunately, the Lady Maroons came out on top of one more than Mt. Carmel, lifting them to a 5-4 win at Washington Park.

"Our ladies played some very competitive tennis tonight," RHS head coach John Ireland said. "We played some great matches against a very tough Mt. Carmel team. Four of the singles matches went three sets and we were able to get two of the four. After singles we were even at 3-3, so we needed to get two of the three doubles for the win and we were able to get that."
