Rogers Commits To Defenders

(Wednesday, February 12; Sioux Center, Iowa) Regina Rogers, a senior at Sergeant Bluff Luton High School (Iowa), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender volleyball program.

"Regina is an explosive athlete who has a lot of versatility through her front row positions.  She is a hard-working, determined, and dedicated athlete who cares about growing in her faith just the same way that she wants to excel on the court and in the classroom.  We are grateful for her high school coach Renee Winkel and club coach Bob Edwards for continually investing into Regina’s development.  We look forward to helping her continue to grow in all areas of her life as she joins our campus this August," said Dordt coach Chad Hanson.

Rogers was a second-team all-state selection in Class 4A last season and helped the Warriors to a state title in that class in November. She had 186 kills with a .282 kill efficiency as a senior.  She's listed 5-7 and played middle hitter and right side hitter in high school. She totaled 86 block assists and 10 solo blocks as a senior.

"I chose to commit to Dordt because there are so many great options. Besides having a great volleyball program they have great academics and a positive enviroment," said Rogers.

Regina is the daughter of Raymond and Ashley Rogers of Sergeant Bluff, Iowa.  She is undecided on a field of study.

Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa, is a comprehensive Christian university rooted in the Reformed tradition. The Defender athletic program is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC).
