Saint Joseph's Robinson Sets Women's Tennis Record For Career Singles Wins

PHILADELPHIA - Establishing herself as one of the top women's tennis players in Saint Joseph's history, redshirt junior Casey Robinson (Radnor, Pa./Harriton) added to her resume last weekend as she became the Hawks' all-time leader in singles victories.


The only Hawk to earn Atlantic 10 All-Conference honors twice, Robinson has posted an impressive 48-18 singles record since joining the team in 2009-10. Entering this season fourth all-time in wins, she quickly moved within striking distance of Allison Popen's record of 47 career wins.


Last Sunday at Massachusetts, Robinson made history. Facing the Minutewomen's Yuliana Motyl, Robinson posted a three-set victory, 6-4, 4-6, 11-9, to earn her 48th career singles win and set a new SJU record.


After an injury-shortened freshman season that saw her go 4-4, Robinson bounced back in 2010-11, going 14-7 and earning Atlantic 10 All-Conference Second Team honors. She followed that with arguably the best season in SJU history. Going 23-6 in singles matches, she set the SJU single-season record for victories en route to earning A-10 All-Conference First Team recognition.


Robinson will look to add to her career marks as she and the Hawks host Richmond this Saturday, February 9 at the Green Valley Tennis Club at 1 p.m.
