January 08, 2014 - Senior Kacy Robinson took her shot quickly with seven seconds left in the third quarter against Stoney Creek last Friday.

The basketball swished through the net for three points, giving the Lady Wolves the lead, 25-23.

Robinson finished the game with 15 points as the girls defeated the Cougars, 41-31.

"Kacy is doing a really excellent job handling point guard responsibilities," said Tim Wasilk, head coach for the Clarkston Girls Varsity Basketball team. "She is doing a good job distributing the basketball and has become much more of a scorer for us this year. She has been a really good leader for us and is really solid defensively for us."

Robinson began playing basketball eight years ago.

"My dad coached my sister when she was younger," she explained. "I would go to her practices and just mess around with her team. Then, I started playing."

Robinson added having family members with knowledge and experience of the game helped her.

She also played with Lady Wolves Varsity Volleyball team during the fall and added the agility helped as she transitioned into the winter season for basketball.

"They have different conditioning and work different muscles but coming into the basketball season I was already warm," she said.

Robinson would like to continue playing basketball in college after she graduates this June. She plans to become a pre-med student and focus on becoming a pediatrician.

"Ever since I was really young I would always go to my family doctor," she explained. "I just fell in love with the job. I also job shadowed her when I was younger, too."

Robinson currently has a 3.0 grade point average and is currently taking Anatomy, Human Relations, Statistics, Child Development 2 and Civics in her second trimester.

Her advice to aspiring Lady Wolves is to always work hard.

"Know that good isn't good enough," she added.
