The second-through-ninth-grade girls and boys spending the week at Chief Sealth Basketball and Life Skills Camp got to meet a pro athlete today – Ashley Robinson, who has just returned to the Seattle Storm, after a season with the Washington Mystics that followed more than six years with the Storm.
Sealth boys’ head coach Colin Slingsby, who heads up the camp program, had told participants yesterday that Robinson would visit today, so they had a chance to come up with questions for her. And they had plenty:
Robinson, who plays center and just turned 31, acknowledged that it’s fun to travel around the world, while pointing out that she wouldn’t be where she is now unless she had worked hard in high school and college, getting good grades and having a vision for what she wanted to do in the long run. Besides memories of meeting and talking with her, campers also got Storm posters. The team’s next game, by the way, is tomorrow night, against the visiting Chicago Sky; the Storm is 10-12 so far this season. The Sealth camp, meantime, has one more weeklong session this summer, the first ever “advanced concepts” version for sixth-through-ninth graders, starting next Monday.
