Robinson's Yellow Jackets turn in impressive summer run, going 15-5

CORBIN —

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

BEREA — Patrick Robinson’s Williamsburg Yellow Jacket basketball team finished a fine summer last week by turning in a Final Four effort in Berea’s Urgent Care Summer Camp.

The Yellow Jackets turned in a 15-5 summer campaign, including going 3-1 during the Berea camp. Williamsburg rolled through pool play, earning a No. 1 seed by going 3-0, but fell in the Final Four in a close game against Clinton County.

“I am very pleased with the way things went there,” Robinson said. “Our guys really played hard and did a fantastic job. It was a 24-team tournament, I believe, with some very good teams and to finish in the Final Four is a big accomplishment.

“We were able to beat Buckhorn and Jackson County in pool play and eventually went 3-0,” he added. “We played against a very good Clinton County team in Clinton County and Betsy Layne, Lexington Christian Academy, Clinton County and ourselves were the teams that made up the Final Four.”

Robinson admitted he saw a lot of improvement out of his team over the summer.

“I did,” he said. “We went 15-5 and lost to North Laurel twice, Wayne County, Clinton County and Somerset. We only lost to Somerset by one point and played Wayne County a very good game and lost a close game to North Laurel, too.

“We are improving a lot and I like what I have been seeing,” Robinson added. “I thought everyone stepped up their game and did a good job. We were also able to get Andrew Griffith back in the lineup and that is very big for us. From start to finish, we have improved and I feel like it’s a great way to end the summer.”
