The Robinson Lady Knights took down Boca Ciega High School in Tuesday night’s regional semifinal matchup by scores of 25-17, 25-22 and 25-21. The victory pushes Robinson through to the Class 5A-8 regional final match, which they will host on Saturday night.

Emily Draper (’17) was solid on the night, picking up 21 digs to lead the team. Catia Sleet (’16) racked up 11 kills paired with nine digs and Rebecca Hill (’16) put up a team-high 16 assists while also totaling nine digs.

The Lady Knights have now reached the regional final in three consecutive seasons. They look to advance to the state semifinals for the second consecutive year with a win over Lely, whom they beat to reach the state semifinals in 2013. Saturday’s match is set to begin at 7 p.m. All Robinson fans are encouraged to wear black in effort to “black out” the stands.
