Former All-American and Villanova standout Rory Rogers enters her fourth year as an assistant coach for the field hockey team for the 2010 season.
Helping in all facets of practice, game and player development, Rogers specializes in coaching the Villanova offense under head coach Joanie Milhous. Most recently, Rogers tutelage can be seen through the accomplishments of Lauren Wuzzardo and Dana Ramsden, both of whom were named to the 2008 and 2009 All-BIG EAST Second Team, Longstreth/NFHCA All-Region Second Team and the All-Philadelphia Team for the second consecutive year under Rogers teaching.
During her four years on the Main Line, Rogers left her mark in the field hockey record books in addition to serving as a team captain. In Villanova's historic 2005 season, Rogers led a record-breaking squad to an outstanding 15-5 record and powered the team to their first regular season BIG EAST Championship and first-ever national ranking.
That same year, Rogers was selected as the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year in addition to being named to the All-BIG EAST First Team for the second time in her career. Following the conclusion of her senior campaign, Rogers was also chosen to play in the prestigous NFHCA Division I North/South Senior All-Star Game.
As a forward, Rogers shouldered a majority of the scoring responsibilities for the Wildcats. She is currently tied for third on Villanova's all-time list with 46 career goals and is the third highest career points leader in Villanova history with 111 points.
Rogers currently resides in Rosemont, Pa.
