Team captain Hannah Robson of the Lancer women’s volleyball team has received the West Division Award of Merit from Ontario University Athletics, recognizing her combination of achievement in academics, community involvement and athletics. The fourth-year kinesiology major is the first Windsor student-athlete to win the honour.
An academic all-Canadian through her UWindsor career, Robson’s volunteer experience includes:
- helping with the rehabilitation of individuals with multiple sclerosis and autism;
- running the “Little Spikes” youth volleyball club; and
- working with a chronic disease program that monitors the rehab of its patients.
On the court, she has been a starter with the varsity squad for four years and since transitioning this season from libero to outside hitter, has averaged 2.29 kills and 2.98 digs per set.
OUA named teammate Shannon Dean an all-star for the second straight year. A middle hitter, Dean was named a second team all-star after finishing the season in the league’s top 10 in solo blocks with 28 and service aces per set at 0.45.
