Wolverines standout Dejah Rogers was named one of the Seattle Times’ “Stars of the Week.” And the award didn’t even include her 1-hit shutout of Garfield on Monday.

From the article:

Dejah Rogers, Bellevue softball

Rogers, a junior pitcher, got off to a hot start at the plate as the Wolverines split four games last week. She collected nine hits in 13 at-bats, a .692 average — but most impressive was her power as she smacked two home runs and four doubles (1.462 slugging percentage), driving in nine runs. On the mound, she struck out 17.

“Dejah has started off strong this season, crushing the ball and coming up with clutch hits and RBI,” coach Heather Tracy said. “She is the ultimate competitor and picks up the play of others around her.”

Congratulations, Dejah!
