Rogers Named SEC Female Athlete of the Year
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - University of Florida senior Hannah Rogers is the 2013-14 Roy F. Kramer Southeastern Conference Female Athlete of the Year, the league announced Tuesday morning. Rogers and the male winner, Kentucky baseball player A.J. Reed, were selected by a vote of the league’s athletics directors.
Rogers led Florida softball to its first national championship in 2014 and was named the Women's College World Series (WCWS) Most Outstanding Player after factoring in all five games (four complete‐game wins, three shutouts, and one save). The Gators went undefeated at the WCWS, outscoring opponents 32-6 in the five games played in Oklahoma City.
The Lake Wales, Fla., native earned a complete‐game victory in all seven starts she made during the NCAA Tournament and finished as the NCAA active career leader in wins (127). Rogers was named a Third Team NFCA All‐American, becoming the first Florida softball player to earn All‐America honors four times. She also earned All‐SEC recognition in each of her four seasons.
This past season, she won 30 games (30‐8) for the third time in her career, compiling a 15‐7 record against ranked opponents, including a six‐game winning streak in such contests to close the season. Rogers completed her Florida career as the second winningest pitcher in program history (Stacey Nelson ‐ 136).
