Hope Rogers wins first ever Sorensen Award

Penn State prop, Hope Rogers '15, has been named as the first-ever MA Sorensen Award Winner as the best Women’s Collegiate rugby player in the country. Hope graduated in the Fall of 2015 and has been helping coach this Spring. In the words of Pete Steinberg - "In my 20 years in coaching college rugby I have not coached or seen a more dominant college player. If you have followed her career you know that the dominance was not given to her, it is something that she has earned." Congratulations, Hope!
