As a result of being so versatile on the court, ELCA sophomore forward Abigail Rogers often surprises her coach Andy Whitlock.

“Abigail can go inside and out,” Whitlock said. “She rebounds well and gets a lot of offensive rebounds and putbacks. She can hit the three. Usually it’s really quiet. She will score and you will look at the book at the end and say oh she had 18, 21.

“You knew she was doing well but didn't realize she had that many,” he said. “A lot of the time it is from a lot of easy baskets. She is definitely a big part of our team.”

Even though she had just 12 points in a 43-37 win against Strong Rock last Saturday, Rogers did most of these things. Sydney Spencer led the way with 18 points.

“She makes the game a lot easier,” Rogers said. “She helps us a lot. She is a great ball handler so as our point guard she is phenomenal at that. She always gets us out of situations.”

“Sydney has a lot of confidence in Abigail on the break,” Whitlock said. “She knows Abigail is going to finish.”

Earlier in the school year, Rogers helped the softball team win the Class A championship.

“I love playing both sports,” Rogers said. “It’s good when you can do both and be effective in both.”
