Waukomis’ Paige Robinette – Enid Area Female Athlete of the Month Presented by Security National Bank

This month’s Enid Area Female Athlete of the Month, Paige Robinette, has been playing softball in her community since she was four years old. Robinette’s love for the sport emerged after watching the older girls in her school play softball.

“It was awesome, seeing them get to steal bases and get home runs was the best!” said Robinette.

Robinette reflects on her spring 2019 slowpitch season saying it was one for the books. She credits their success to her team’s chemistry as most of them have been playing together since they were children. This chemistry made playing together easier because they all knew each other and how each team member played.

“My favorite game was the Skeltur Tournament when we played Pioneer for the championship,” she said. “They are our school rivals so beating them is amazing, but when you play lights out it just makes it so much better.”

In addition to softball, Robinette participates in cheerleading, basketball, and has competed in track in the past. She enjoys being able to compete for her school with her friends and showing other schools the hard work and seriousness she and her teammates put into their sport.

Robinette is inspired by her grandfather, claiming he is one of the biggest reasons she plays softball. Her grandfather has taught her to give her best no matter the circumstances, to never quit, and always finish what you have started. She looks up to her grandfather the most because he encourages her to always play with all her heart.

“My family and my grandfather are what motivates me the most because they always support me and my decisions with school and sports,” she said.

Upon graduation in the spring of 2020, Robinette plans to attend college and possibly continue to do cheer and play softball. She plans on majoring in and getting her doctorate in pharmaceuticals.
