Robinson leads Clan to volleyball win

Clayton Heights grad helps SFU to split two matches at home

Cloverdale’s Kelsey Robinson led the Simon Fraser University (SFU) women’s volleyball team to their first win in Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) play Thursday night in Burnaby.

The SFU Clan edged the Central Washington University Wildcats 3-2 in a best-of-five contest, winning the last two sets for the victory. The Clan won the first set 25-21, dropped the next two 16-25, 21-25. A long fourth set ended in SFU’s favor 30-38. The Clan clinched the match with a 15-8 win in the deciding set.

Robinson, a graduate of Clayton Heights Secondary, led SFU with 21 kills, three more than teammate Madeline Hait.

“This is definitely a huge high,” said Robinson after the victory. “This is exciting but now we need to focus on our next match on Saturday.”

Saturday did not go as well, as the Clan fell 3-1 to the Northwest Nazarene Crusaders at the West Gym of the Burnaby campus of SFU.

Robinson tied Hait for the team lead with 21 kills, and also added 17 digs.

In 10 matches with the Clan this season, Robinson leads the tea with 126 kills and is ranked second in defense with 131 digs. She is in her third season with the Clan, having earned GNAC academic all-star honours in each of her first two years with a 3.81 grade point average.

The Clan are 4-6 (won-lost) overall, and 1-3 in GNAC play.
