Siena water polo's Traci Robertson has received one more honor before her pending graduation from Siena College. Robertson, who co-captained the Saints in 2012, was inducted into Alpha Kappa Alpha, and will graduate with honors on Sunday at the Times Union Center.
A native of Santee, Calif., Robertson leaves Siena with her name in several prominent spots in Siena water polo's record book. She is third in Siena history with 114 games played, fourth with 109 career assists, and tied for fourth with 120 career steals. She led the Green and Gold with 69 assists, 98 points, and 52 ejections drawn in 30 games played during the 2012 season.
Additionally, Robertson epitomized the term "student athlete." She will graduate Siena with a cumulative GPA of 3.9 in the school's Accounting program, and is a three-time MAAC All-Academic Team selection. A Presidential Scholar, Robertson also posted a perfect 4.0 GPA in the Fall 2011 semester, and is one of three student athletes (along with Julie Juchno and Meghan Yi) to be graduating Alpha Kappa Alpha.
Siena went 9-21 in 2012, and tied for fourth in the MAAC with a 4-8 conference record. The Saints graduate Robertson and All-MAAC First Team selection Katie Ness, but will return 11 letterwinners for the 2013 campaign.
