BEDFORD – Bedford North Lawrence volleyball coach Jordan Robbins has resigned after three seasons with the program.

Robbins posted a 30-51 record during her tenure. She cited personal reasons, with a bustling family of four children, for the move.

“At this time, I felt it was best to step down,” Robbins said. “My family and kids are much more active as they have gotten older. Missing events is never easy as a parent, so it was time for my volleyball family to move on without me.

“It is very odd not to plan right now for the season, but my kids were relieved, and that broke my heart. It was one of the hardest decisions to make, but my family had to come first.”

Robbins was a four-year standout at Greencastle (graduating in 2005 after setting school records for kills, blocks and serving) and played one college season at Franklin. She is the wife of former basketball standout and current assistant Zack Robbins. She succeeded Scott Saunders, who departed with 378 career wins.

“I am grateful for the amazing opportunity to serve BNL, the student-athletes, and families as volleyball coach,” Robbins said.

Robbins highly endorsed assistant Gabrielle Arthur to follow her. Arthur is a BNL alum.

”Gabrielle would be the perfect fit,” Robbins said. “She is determined, hard working, knows the game and the girls respect her. She is a wonderful leader. BNL would be lucky to snag her.”
