Pacific athletes of the week
Last week: Completed 6 of 9 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown, and set up two other scores with long completions to Dionte Waite, as the Dragons ended Yokota’s Pacific-record 51-game regular-season winning streak 18-14 Saturday at Kubasaki’s Mike Petty Stadium.
Robinson, a junior, passed 34 yards to Waite to set up Kubasaki’s first TD, then threw 59 yards to Waite prior to the game-winning touchdown pass, a 20-yarder to Andrew Candelaria with 3:44 left. The interconference battle resulted in Kubasaki’s first victory in seven tries since winning the Class AA championship game in 2005.
"We’ve been waiting for him to do that, put the ball on people. He’s starting to fulfill the entire role as quarterback," assistant coach Jon Fick said of Robinson’s emerging as a leader. "He’s not there yet, but he’s starting to figure it out."
Allie McCormickCross country
Last week: Led a 1-2-3 finish by the Falcons in the 3.1-mile race during Saturday’s Korean-American Interscholastic Activities Council meet at Camp Walker, hosted by Daegu American.
McCormick, a sophomore, ran the course in 21 minutes, 34 seconds. She was followed by teammates Pam Code (21:48) and Dorothy Krebill (22:01), and the Falcons prevailed in the team standings over four other schools. Seoul American is unbeaten in two meets this season.
Coach Steve Boyd feels his group as a whole is "young, coachable, a pleasure to work with," and refers to McCormick as an "intriguing young lady, always working hard to improve her times."
