PERSONAL: Parents are Whitley and Alan Robertson... Her older brother, Maclain, attends Fresno City College... Enjoys reading... Not many people know that she plays the string bass...

Would love to study and live in Paris, France... Chose UC Davis because the school possessed everything she wanted: great academics, a good softball program, beautiful campus and location... If she could change anything about her sport, she would make the ball a little softer because, as a catcher, she is hit often...John Lack, her high school band director, is ner non-sports hero who changed her outlook on life. His passion and determination to not only be the best, but to help and better every student in his program was touching; I will never forget his words and beliefs...
