On the mound, the right-hander finished with all of Beamer's wins this season and had an earned-run average of just 2.26 in 204 1/3 innings. Rogers also finished with a school record 301 strikeouts. Opponents hit just .199 against her and she threw a no-hitter with 14 strikeouts during a 9-0 win over Curtis on April 22.

At the plate, the first-team, All-South Puget Sound League South Division selection hit .302 with 26 RBIs, seven doubles, three triples and two home runs.

She also had 20 RBIs, five doubles and five triples. Her best game of the season came during a 12-0 win over Bethel on April 17.
