Maroons Prepare for Sectional Title


The last time the Robinson Maroons won a sectional title, they went on to win the state championship.

That was in 2010 (featuring Myles Leonard) and Robinson would love to repeat those fortunes.

The Maroons are in the IHSA Class 2A Sweet 16 and are getting set for the sectional championship Friday night in West Frankfort in a showdown with the Mt. Carmel Golden Aces.

Robinson edged out Eldorado on Tuesday evening to advance to the sectional finale, while the Golden Aces outlasted Teutopolis on Wednesday.

A win Friday night and the Maroons advance to the Elite 8.

Back to work this afternoon for the team, Robinson is led by senior Dylan Dirks, averaging 19.5 points per game.

Robinson and Mt. Carmel clashed back in December with the Maroons falling 56 to 42.

Tip off is set for 7pm central time in West Frankfort.
