Rogers Named Ivy League Player Of Week

Wessels, Johnson Also Honored

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Mollie Rogers, who had 31 kills and just seven errors in Yale's Ivy League title clinching sweep of Penn and Princeton, has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week.

Rogers had 16 kills in a four-set win over Penn and followed that up with 15 kills and a .316 hitting percentage as Yale swept Princeton to clinch the regular season crown. Both of her kill totals were match-highs.

Rogers is the third Bulldog to earn Player of the Week honors this season, joining Kendall Polan (Sept. 4, 25) and Haley Wessels (Sept. 11). In addition, Kelly Johnson has earned four Rookie of the Week selections.

Wessels, who had 21 kills and 10 blocks, and Johnson, who had 40 digs and 38 assists, were each named to the Ivy Honor Roll this week.

The Bulldogs close out the regular season with a pair of home matches this weekend, hosting Harvard on Friday at 7 p.m. and Dartmouth on Saturday at 5 p.m.
