Louisa County High School senior Kylie Robinson may have just finished her final season with the Lions, but she’s not done with volleyball yet. After verbally committing to play for the Bridgewater College Eagles next season, she made it official on Nov. 18, signing her official letter of intent during a ceremony at the high school.
“It feels really crazy,” she said after the ceremony. “I’ve wanted this to happen and I never really thought that it would, and now that it has I don’t think it’s fully sunk in.”
Robinson has played on the Lions’ varsity volleyball team since her freshman season and has been a key contributor to the team’s offense. She chose to take her talent to Bridgewater after visiting the campus and talking to Coach Erin Harris and some members of the volleyball team.
“As soon as I walked on campus, I just felt at peace there and it felt like a home,” she said. “After meeting with Coach Erin and the team and talking to them about the program and how they incorporate leadership into the program it just felt really special to me and I knew I wanted to be there.”
Volleyball coach Rachel Green said that watching Kylie sign was “extra special” after seeing how much she’s grown over the past several years.
“I have really high hopes that she’s going to carry on her love of leadership and love of learning and her passion for volleyball,” she said. “She has so much to contribute to the program at Bridgewater, to the school, and the community as a whole with her volunteer experience. She’s going to change the world.”
Robinson says she plans to join Bridgewater’s Pre-Professional Biology program and to work toward a career as a veterinarian.
