Rogers Claims SAC Women's Basketball Freshman of the Year Honors
ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSac.com) -- Catawba’s Terri Rogers (Burlington, N.C./E. Alamance HS) has been named the 2014-15 South Atlantic Conference Women’s Basketball Freshman of the Year. Anderson guard Sierra Simpson was voted the Player of the Year and Kevin Garrity, of Anderson, was tabbed the Coach of the Year, the league announced the awards on Wednesday.
Catawba placed two players on the All-SAC second team in Jada Huntley (Indian Trail, N.C./Porter Ridge HS) and Bri Johnson (Statesville, N.C./N. Iredell HS/Belmont Abbey). Chloe Bully (Hannut, Belgium/KOL Landen) was an honorable mention selection.
Rogers averaged 10.9 points during the regular season and posted five double-doubles. Her 8.7 rebounding average ranked fourth in the league, while her shooting percentage of 47.8% was seventh best in the conference. Rogers garnered five of a possible 11 first place votes.
Huntley rejoined the team after the first semester and led the team in scoring (14.1), rebounding (9.2) and steals (55). She only played in 17 games, and while not officially ranked in league stats she would stand seventh in scoring, third in rebounding and first in steals.
Johnson averaged 13 points a contest, which is tenth in the SAC and also added 4.8 rebounds a game. Bully, the school’s all-time leader in three-pointers, averaged 12.1 points and was sixth in the SAC in assists (86).
