Ellie Rodgers added to her long list of awards this week, as she earned All-State recognition this season. Rodgers was Rolla's leading scorer in one of the best seasons in program history, as she helped lead the Lady Bulldogs to their second State Quarterfinal appearance in school history.
Rodgers finished the season averaging a shade under 12 points per game, while also dishing out 3.7 assists, grabbing 3.3 rebounds and snagging 2.7 steals per game. Rodgers shot a spectacular 45 percent from long range, connecting on 44 threes on the season. Along with leading the team in scoring, Rodgers led the team in assists, steals, free throw percentage and three point percentage.
The All-State nod is another in a laundry list of awards Rodgers has already earned for the season. She was named first team All-Ozark Conference, All-District and was a Central Missouri Media All-District first teamer. Rodgers helped lead Rolla to both a Conference Co-Championship and a District Title, as well as their second Sectional win in program history. The Lady Bulldogs finished the season with a record of 24-4.
