Outside Hitter commits to Bridgewater for volleyball

Anna Turner, Editor-in-Chief

 From the moment Senior Kylie Robinson started playing volleyball in middle school, she knew she wanted to play in college. Five years later, she can now check that off her list. 

  After a volleyball clinic at Bridgewater College and conversations with the coach, Robinson was offered a position on the volleyball team. 

  “I did not commit at that moment but on the drive home [from the clinic], I knew it was the place for me. I called her that afternoon and committed that day which was on July 19th,” Robinson said. 

  Robinson is looking forward to growing alongside the coaches at Bridgewater on and off the court. 

   “I know that they are not only going to love and support me, but also push me to be the best person I can be all while preparing me for my future life successes,” Robinson said. 

 Robinson has been a member of the LCHS Girls Varsity volleyball team since ninth grade and captain for three years. She made her name known by receiving awards including making First Team in the district her junior year. 

  “While the awards have given me goals to reach for as a player, I feel my biggest achievement has been being able to grow and develop alongside Coach Green and the other seniors. They have been my other family and I would not have accomplished any of the awards without them on the court with me,” Robinson said. 

 Robinson also credits her success to her parents. They have supported her by coming to every game and helping her find opportunities to grow as an athlete. 

  “They have always given me the opportunity to find ways to develop more, whether it has been through travel ball, private coaching or just working with me at home in the yard,” Robinson said. 

 The Head Volleyball coach Rachel Green said Robinson’s leadership style inspires the whole team to be successful. 

  “Kylie leads by example. She has a no quit attitude that pushes all of us to work just a little harder each day. The care and love she demonstrates for her teammates and coaches build lasting relationships that take all of us far beyond the court,” Green said. 

 Robinson is excited to become a better leader at Bridgewater with her future coaches and teammates while building a legacy. 

“Personally I want to be someone my team can look up to and count on when we are in tough situations. I want to not only be a teammate, but a friend that they will remember and continue to have in their life even after I graduate,” Robinson said.
