The Edmonton Tsunami Water Polo Club is very excited to congratulate Robyn Currie who has committed to play NCAA Division 1 water polo at Mount St. Mary’s University! Robyn will be the first Canadian female athlete to join this program and will make an immediate impact as both an athlete and a leader. The Mount will add Robyn to their roster next season where she plans to pursue a degree in psychology.
Robyn has been a valued member of the Tsunami community for the past seven seasons. During this time Robyn has distinguished herself as a talented athlete, exemplary student, natural leader and passionate coach. Throughout her highly decorated career Robyn has medaled at every Western and National Championship she has competed at. Her defensive versatility, playmaking capabilities, strong sense of the game, and leadership will transition her seamlessly to the NCAA.
“I am thrilled to see that Robyn will be joining the NCAA next season. Robyn has an exceptional work ethic and has earned this accomplishment through years of daily actions of excellence. Not only am I confident that Robyn will be an impact player in the water, but I know she will be a strong ambassador for Tsunami as she has repeatedly shown me her courage, grit and integrity. Robyn, I look forward to seeing you compete for The Mount and continuing to make Tsunami proud!”
– Raine Paul, Tsunami Head Coach
Over the course of Robyn’s club career she has proven herself to be a crunch-time player who steps-up under pressure. When other players begin to feel the heat, Robyn’s calm and confident demeanor acts as a beacon for her team. Scoring big goals in do-or-die moments, Robyn is the player you want in the water when the game is on the line. As both a defensive powerhouse and strong offensive contributor, Robyn’s game will continue to escalate in this next chapter of her career.
Aside from her accomplishments in the pool, Robyn’s actions outside the water will leave a lasting impact at Tsunami. As the 2019 and 2020 winner of Tsunami’s Outstanding Leadership Award, Robyn embodies all the values our club stands for. Time and time again our club has witnessed Robyn be there for her teammates and lead by example in difficult situations. While Tsunami will miss her strong leadership presence, we know that through the example she has set at our club we will see future leaders follow in her footsteps. Additionally, Robyn was recognized as the 2020 Student Athlete of the Year and 2019 Teammate of the Year.
