GBThe Pacific Coast Athletic Conference has selected Grossmont College swimmer Robin Anderson as its Women’s Athlete of the Week.
Anderson, a sophomore from Granite Hills High School who was Grossmont’s water polo captain in the fall, played a huge role in the Griffins’ 155-139 victory over Palomar. She captured two individual events and also swam on two winning relay teams.  Anderson won the 50-yard freestyle in 27.22 and the 100 freestyle in 58.60. She also swam legs on Grossmont’s winning 200 medley and 200 free relay teams.
