COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina women’s soccer senior defender Evelyn Robinson has been named to the SEC Soccer Community Service Team, the league announced Thursday afternoon.

Now in its 12th year, the Community Service Team looks to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.

Robinson, who started all 24 matches for the Gamecocks at right back this past fall, has taken part in a variety of community events that has benefited people of all ages. Last April, she participated in YMCA local soccer events and assisted in running practices for youth players. She taught the players new soccer skills while building relationships with each girl.

Robinson also spent time with senior citizens this past year carving pumpkins with them at the Carolina Gardens. She celebrated the Halloween season with the youth community as well, as the McLean, Va., native was at Boo at the Zoo passing out candy. The annual event brings together South Carolina student-athletes with others in the community.

In her final season at Carolina, Robinson notched two points on a pair of assists. She was a part of a back line that helped the Gamecocks tally 14 shutouts and rank sixth in NCAA Division I with a program-record 0.41 goals against average. Carolina captured the 2016 SEC Regular-Season Title before advancing to the NCAA Elite Eight for the second time in three seasons.
