Spartanburg, S.C. – Former USC Upstate softball player Shellie Robinson has enjoyed a great start to her third professional year in National Pro Fastpitch as the outfielder ranks among the top offensive players in the league to begin the 2017 season.

Robinson, who played at Upstate from 2012-15, has appeared in all 25 games this season for the Akron Racers and is tied for first in the NPF with six home runs while ranking second with 19 RBI.  The six home runs have already surpassed her previous career-high of five during the 2015 campaign. Robinson is hitting .400 overall to go with a .767 slugging percentage and .431 on-base percentage.

A native of DeLand, Fla., Robinson was drafted by the Racers in 2015 with 23rd pick overall. She wrapped up her stellar four-year career as a Spartan leading the program in career home runs, slugging percentage and total bases. Robinson is the Division I career leader in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, at bats, runs, hits, doubles, home runs, RBI, total bases and walks.

Robinson was a highly decorated player at Upstate. She was the ASUN Player of the Year in 2014 and 2015. She became the first Upstate student-athlete to earn All-America honors on the Division I level when she earned NFCA Third Team All-America honors in 2014. She was a four-time NFCA All-Region selection and earned ASUN First Team All-Conference honors as well.
