against Otero Rodgers bounced back from a down game one to go 2 for 4
with a double and an RBI in the Lady Saints game two win. Saturday in
Seward’s matchup with Trinidad State, she drove in a run in game one to
go along with a pair of walks and was 1 for 3 with a double and 2 RBI’s
in game two of the Lady Saints sweep of the Lady Trojans. In her final
game of the week against #18 Western Nebraska, Rodgers was at the
forefront of Seward’s 6-0 upset win over the Cougars as she went 2 for 4
with 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, and 2 RBI’s for the Lady Saints. Rodgers
