Sault Ste. Marie’s Robertson Signs with SIU

Sault Ste. Marie senior Ali Robertson will be continuing her competitive swimming and academic careers at Southern Illinois University in the fall.

Robertson has broken multiple program and Upper Peninsula records and is a seven-time MHSAA UP finals champion. Received 794461317773132

While she had interest from several colleges, Robertson felt most comfortable going to SIU after her conservations with the team.

“I did a lot of FaceTimes and Zooms with the swimmers and coaches,” Robertson said. “I think they (SIU) were the school that kept me most informed with what’s going on with COVID and everything. They gave me the most information for what I would be doing and I really liked that.”

A three-time U.P. Female Swimmer of the Year, Robertson will study criminal justice at SIU.
