She was also named head coach of the 2007 Midwest High Performance team and led them to a second place finish at the national tournament.
Robertson's teams succeed on the field and in the classroom. At Indiana, Robertson has mentored three All-Americans, 15 All-Big Ten selections, 15 All-West Region honorees, one U.S. Field Hockey member and one Honda Award semifinalist. Off the field, IU boasts 78 Academic All-Big Ten and 88 NFHCA National Academic Squad selections.
