The state tourney win was the second for Robinson in 2017, as she was also a pivotal member of Thetford's Vermont state Division III girls' basketball championship this past winter. Danielle was named first team all-state goalkeeper in soccer, and was chosen as part of the state-wide "Dream Dozen" in basketball.
