A Bulldog Has Been Honored In Each Of The First Three Weeks

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Freshman outside hitter Mollie Rogers (San Diego, Calif.), who posted double-doubles in each of the three matches in the Yale Classic, has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for the second straight week.

Rogers started the weekend with 10 kills, 15 digs, four aces, two assists and hit .364 in a sweep of New Hampshire.  The next afternoon, Rogers hit a stellar .625 with 10 kills, 13 digs, two solo blocks and two assists in a 3-0 win over Quinnipiac.  She was instrumental in a come-from-behind, five-set win over Army.  Rogers had 11 kills, 23 digs, two solo blocks, an assist and an ace against the Black Knights.

On the year, Rogers leads the Bulldogs in kills and kills per set, ranks second on the squad in digs and has earned all-tournament honors at each of Yale's three tournament appearances this season.  She also ranks among the top 10 in kills (6th) and digs (9th) within the Ivy League.

This is the third straight week a Bulldog has been honored. Kendall Polan was selected Player of the Week on Sept. 6 and Rogers earned Rookie of the Week honors last week.

Yale is back in action on Wednesday night at Albany.
