By Matt Browning

Garrett Robertson of Hutchinson was chosen as the Kansas Turnpike Authority Athlete of the Month for February. Robertson Is averaging nearly 15 points per game for the Salthawks, a year after being chosen second team all-league.

“I have been pleased with my performance this year,” Robertson said. “The past couple of games have been especially great for me. I am starting to find the right shots in our offense as well as finding my teammates who can knock down shots.”

Hutchinson has been one of the top teams in Class 5A this season and have emerged as a state contender.

“Winning state is what I would consider a successful season for us,” Robertson said. “We have all the tools we need to win state. We have knock down shooters, perimeter lockdowns, and a great coaching staff. I expect nothing less from this team. We just have to keep our heads down, compete, and get better every day.”

While Robertson was a solid player last season, there were areas to his game he wanted to improve on for this season.

“An area I wanted to improve was to be more aggressive on the drive, to become more of a crafty finisher,” Robertson said. “I have seen progress in my finishing around the rim. This year I have been scoring more in the paint than in previous years.”

Robertson is open to playing basketball in college, but right now he waiting to see what this season continues to bring.

“My future goals are to become a mechanical engineer,” Robertson said. “I have not decided on which college I will attend. I am waiting to see where this season will take me.”
