Jade Robinson, co-Captain of the 2015 Lady Cardinals, will continue her volleyball career at the next level with Tennessee Wesleyan in Athens TN.

Robinson is a three-year varsity player and the emotional leader of the current Cardinal squad; a team which matched the deepest playoff run in school history.  Over Robinson's varsity tenure the Cardinals recorded a 46-2 district record and a playoff appearance every year.  As a sophomore, Robinson represented Bellaire High and was featured as one of Houston's top players in Houston's Vype Magazine's 2013 Volleyball Edition.  Her high school volleyball experience ends with Bellaire on a win streak at 32 consecutive 3-set sweep victories against district opponents; that's 96 consecutive set wins.  Robinson was a 2014 All-District selection and received All-District 1st Team honors in 2015.

This year, Robinson led the Cardinals to a 34-6 overall season record which includes an undefeated District 20-6A Championship and a Championship win in the highly competitive 2015 Spring Branch ISD Tournament.  She helped lead Bellaire to their first Gold Bracket appearance in the Adidas Texas Volleyball Invitational Tournament annually held in Pearland.  Bellaire's performance in both tournaments are firsts in school history.

The talented Robinson played outside hitter in 2015; routinely performing near the top across team statistical categories.  In 94 sets; Robins put down 175 kills and 22 aces, dug 241 attacks and received 318 serves.  She is a 6 rotation player who most impactful contributions are not recorded in the stat book; leadership and timely play making.  

Bellaire Head Coach Clarke said, "Jade was our emotional leader on the floor.  She was the tipping point in so many of our competitions.  She drives the team to perform at a higher level and holds her teammates accountable to perform their best.  She is a special person, player and seen by our team as an important leader." 

Robinson is a 5 year club athlete qualifying for USAV Nationals twice.  She will play club volleyball this spring for Houston Juniors 18 National team.  
 
Congratulations Jade!  We will continue to cheer on your success at the next level!
