Fleming, Robinson Ink Pro Volleyball Contracts


DURHAM – Recent Duke volleyball graduates Lizzie Fleming and Jess Robinson signed professional contracts to play volleyball in Europe. Fleming will compete with ASP Thetis in Voula, Greece, while Robinson signed with Nantes Neptunes in Nantes, France.

A five-year staple for Duke volleyball, Fleming finished her career as one of the best middle blockers in recent history. The San Francisco, Calif., native tallied 739 kills for a .308 hitting percentage, 459 total blocks, 160 digs and 35 aces. She cemented herself in Duke’s record books – seventh in total blocks (459), 10th in hitting percentage (.308), tied for second in matches played (131) and 10th in sets played (459).

In 2023, she hit over .400 percent 18 times, including a .667 percent against Virginia (9/24/23) with 10 kills and no errors on 15 swings. Her hitting percentage career-high is .700 (10k, 0e, 10a) versus Virginia Tech (11/7/21). Over the course of her career, she tallied four-or-more blocks in 65 games with a career-high of 13 during her freshman season against NC State (11/10/19).

Robinson closed out her eligibility in Durham after a stellar career at Michigan, and she did not disappoint. She knocked down 244 kills and played to an outstanding .380 hitting percentage for the season, which ranked 10th in the conference. She led the team with 112.0 total blocks and was eighth in the ACC in blocks/set with 1.15. 

She recorded 10 games with double-digit kills and posted one double-double at her alma mater with 10 kills and 10 total blocks. She produced three-plus blocks in 21 contests this fall and recorded zero errors in six contests. Robinson was vital in disrupting numerous offenses throughout the fall and held six opponents to below a .100 hitting percentage.
