Emily Robinson

Athlete bio: Robinson was a senior pitcher on the Ironwood Ridge softball team.

Date and location: May 19 at Farrington Softball Stadium in Tempe.

The details: Having been in the state final twice before and not winning, Robinson made sure the third time was a charm. The four-year player capped off an incredible run through the Division II state playoffs by striking out four and giving up five hits over seven innings as I-Ridge beat Canyon del Oro 2-1.

Robinson pitched all 37 innings for the Nighthawks in the state tournament, including 11 against Tucson High in the second round.
