Join me Wednesday, July 18 at noon ET when I will talk with softball hall of famer and coach Robin Penoyer about goals, drive and never giving up!

In 9th grade, Robin walked 250 batters - a sin in softball! However, she quickly found her focus, buying into the ‘500 pitches a day’ theory and ended up breaking national high school consecutive NO-Hit records, winning back-to-back-to-back league, sectionals and state championship in her senior year. Her high school accolades include Minnesota State and Sectional Champions, national No-hit records, and being acknowledged on ESPN and in Sports Illustrated. She attended the University of Minnesota where her accolades include Big Ten Champions and winning the U. of Minnesota’s first NCAA regional game against Texas A & M. Her lowest E.R.A was .88. She was All-Big Ten. After graduation, Robin was inducted into the University of Minnesota Softball Hall of Fame. After College Robin played with a few Women's Major Teams, predominantly the Topton VIPs, of Lyons, PA. She also played with the Twin City Jammers and Allentown Pates. She has played professionally around the US as well as with the championship Centrals from DeBilt, Utrecht, Netherlands.

Robin has continued coaching at her alma mater, Stockbridge Valley C.S. N.Y. She has coached soccer, volleyball, and softball to back to back to back championships in each sport. Her volleyball team was undefeated. She has trained state accolade players and reached sectional finals in all three sports. She has been pitching coach and head coach at DIII schools, where she pulled the programs all the way to regional sides. Her dream now is to coach a D1 team. Robin says, "Drive, with Goals and not giving up is the key!"
