“Raegan Rogers to play for OU in fall of 2015” Written By Bill Plummer
NORMAN, OK –Head coach Patty Gasso announced Tuesday that Raegan Rogers has agreed to an enrollment commitment and will be joining the Oklahoma softball program beginning in the fall of 2015. She joins a class of seven student athletes that signed National Letters of Intent with the Sooners in November.
“Raegan is a very solid addition to the program,” Gasso said. “She joins a very strong group of incoming freshman and will challenge for playing time immediately. She is strong, she has speed and we expect her to make an impact on this team as a freshman.”
A native of Blanchard, Okla., Rogers is an outfielder who is finishing up her senior year at Bridge Creek High School under the tutelage of Ray Chidester. Rogers, who chose OU over Arkansas and Houston, earned four letters playing fastpitch and was named her team’s Offensive Player of the Year every season.
“Ever since I was a little girl it has been a dream of mine to play for Coach Gasso, her staff and the University of Oklahoma,” Rogers said. “The Lord has blessed me with a great opportunity, and I plan on competing to the best of my ability and impacting the program in a positive way. I look forward to obtaining a degree in the medical field and competing for a national championship.”
In her senior season, Rogers hit .620 with 53 runs scored, 38 runs batted in, six home runs and 36 stolen bases to be named to the Middle West All-State Team and All-Region First Team. She was also named Sooner Conference Defensive Player of the Year and earned a spot on the All-Conference Team.
As a junior, Rogers was selected to the Oklahoman Little All-City First Team and was an All-Conference honoree. In addition, she was a conference All-Star in her sophomore season.
Rogers has spent the past eight summers playing for GameTime Stars Gold out of Oklahoma City under Rusty Fisher. This past summer, she hit .422 with 65 runs scored, 35 RBI, six homers and 34 bases stolen. The past two seasons have seen her squads finish in a tie for 17th at the 16U Premier Girls Fastpitch National Championship, while in 2012 she helped lead her team to the 14U USSSA National Championship.
Off the field, Rogers is a member of the National Honor Society and has been selected to the Superintendent’s Honor Roll for four straight years.
