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... Her career athletics highlight took place when she was named MVP in a Fresno city/county all-star game... Also enjoys playing water polo... Buster Posey is her sports hero... 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 her 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... "When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful," is her advice to others... Competed as a member of Central California Dirt Dogs' club softball team (Hanford, California) for four years.
