Kevin Robinson has served as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology women's basketball program during an era of record setting success.
Robinson has spent eight seasons on the Rose-Hulman staff for a team that has shown steady improvement, highlighted by the team's first NCAA Division III Tournament trips in 2017 and 2018.
Over the past three years, the Fightin' Engineers have won the first three regular season conference championships in program history; claimed its first and second Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament titles; and reached the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2017 and 2018. The team has relied on a strong defense ranked No. 3 in fewest points allowed in NCAA Division III in 2017.
Rose-Hulman has achieved an overall record of 71-12 over the past three seasons, including school record 24-4 marks in 2017 and 2018. The team has also achieved the longest (22 games) and second-longest (18 games) winning streaks in Rose-Hulman women's basketball history.
The success has been in part due to an increased roster size for the women's basketball program. By casting a net nationwide to attract top female engineering students to a college ranked No. 1 in its category by U.S. News and World Report, the team's roster has increased from seven to as high as 21.
Robinson has also helped the Fightin' Engineer women's golf team to five consecutive second-place finishes at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Golf Championships.
The 2017-18 women's golf team completely rewrote its record book, with highlights including:
* Low team 18-hole score (313)
* Low team 36-hole score (629)
* Low individual 18-hole score (73)
* Low individual 36-hole score (151)
* Best Conference Championship finish in school history (2nd place)
* The four lowest individual single-season stroke averages in program history (80.17; 82.19; 82.75; 83.00)
The last four years also include the top six single-round scoring performances in Rose-Hulman history. Rose-Hulman has also recorded four consecutive seasons with two all-conference honorees. Robinson has recruited eight of the 10 all-conference performers in the history of Fightin' Engineer women's golf.
On the women's basketball side, Robinson has served as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator during an era of record setting success.
Over the past two years, the Fightin' Engineers have won the first two regular season conference championships in program history; claimed its first Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament title; and reached the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time. The team has relied on a strong defense ranked No. 13 nationally in fewest points allowed in 2016 and No. 3 in NCAA Division III in 2017.
Robinson's golf career has included work as a senior assistant golf professional at some of the nation's top courses. His career stops have included Yeamans Hall Club in Charleston, South Carolina, ranked 38th nationally by Golfweek magazine in its list of America's best classical golf courses; Lost Dunes Golf Club in Bridgman, Michigan, ranked 41st by Golfweek magazine in its listing of America's best modern golf courses; The Bay Club at Mattapoisett in Massachusetts; Whisper Rock Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona; and most recently, The Landings Club in Savannah, Georgia.
