The Mid-American Conference recognized Ohio Soccer’s Cat Rogers Thursday, awarding the senior Second Team All-MAC honors for her successful season.
Rogers’ seven goals this season were a team-high and put her tied for ninth in Ohio soccer history with 13 career goals. She was also tied for eighth in the conference in goals scored.
Rogers’ senior campaign started off strong with five goals in the first half of the season. The forward buoyed the Bobcats several times throughout the season, especially during the Bobcats’ stretch of six straight wins.
Coach Stacy Strauss relied on Rogers this season to take the big shots when the Bobcats needed them the most. Ohio set its offensive strategy around Rogers, who also finished the season with four assists.
She led the Bobcats to the MAC Tournament before getting eliminated by Miami in the quarterfinals. The senior made the MAC Tournament all four years in the program and was a major reason for the team’s success this season.
Rogers also led the team in shots, shots on goal and game winners.
She was recognized by the MAC in 2010 as an Academic All-MAC player and was awarded MAC East Division Player of the Week twice this season. Rogers is the only Ohio player to be recognized by the conference.
