Robinson scored .562 runs with just one error in 16 attempts for the match. The Badgers hit .309, keeping the Wildcats on .156.
Thomas-Ellara finished with a match-high 12 kills, as he has recorded a double-figure in every match this season. But he scored just .128 runs for the match, with seven errors in 39 swings.
“A player like this is going to hit the kills because they’re going to be set up a lot,” Sheffield said. “She had some kills that were really impressive, but I think you’ll take the .128. It’s not like she hits high but she works on the court, she can go up and get the ball. She herself Worth the price of admission.”
Robinson was the only Badgers player with double points in the kills. Sophomore Jade Demps had six kills, making most of his loss in back-line attacks. He also took his turn in the service rotation.
“I thought Jade had a really good match,” Sheffield said. “Serving has been something that he has struggled with a bit, but it has been such serve for him and we have got some good runs. We were driving him far out of the backcourt. That’s where I think she can be a real weapon for us.
Dana Rettke had five kills and three blocks to move up to second on the UW career list in both of those categories. She has overtaken Amy Lee (1,661) with 1,665 kills, leaving only Sherisa Livingston (1,912) behind. His 673 blocks surpass Taylor Reneke (671) and are just nine behind all-time leader Heather Dodaro (692).
