Rollins College Athletes of the Week:  Amber Heistan and Matt Robertson

Seniors Matt Robertson and Amber Heistan were named this week's Rollins' Athlete of the Week after their respective record breaking performances against Saint Leo on Saturday at Warden Arena.

Robertson netted a career-high 27 points as the No. 23 Rollins Tars defeated the Saint Leo Lions 86-49.  The 6-8 forward went 9-of-12 from the field (5-of-8 from 3-pointer) and added 10 rebounds to his 27 points.  His previous career best was 24, set in the season opener against Delta State.

The Birmingham, Ala. native also recorded 14 points and pulled down five boards earlier in the week against Barry as he went 5-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the charity stripe.

Draining a school record seven 3-pointers, forward Amber Heistan joins Robertson for Athlete of the Week as she led the No. 19 Tars past Sain Leo 73-50.  Heistan was 7-of-8 from 3-point range and recorded career-highs 21 points and five steals.  Her seven triples broke the school mark of six that was set three times by Jessica Pressley and once each by Jennifer Gossett and Nicole Sullivan.
