Milloy had a career-year in 2022 as she set top marks in batting average (.362), runs (53), hits (71), doubles (12), home runs (15) and RBIs (53). She also recorded career-bests in slugging percentage (.673) and OPS (1.128).
The outfielder led Tennessee in each category, and garnered All-SEC Second Team recognition along with second team Softball America and D1Softball All-American accolades.
In the circle, Rogers picked up 12 wins in 2022 with a 2.01 ERA over 25 appearances. The righty threw seven complete games, earned four shutouts and locked down a trio of saves. She tossed 104.1 innings for the Lady Vols a year ago, recording 128 strikeouts. She held opponents to a .156 batting average against last season.
The Top 25 Finalists for the 2022 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award will be announced April 19. While an athlete does not have to be on the “Watch List” to be considered for the Top 25, the eventual USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year will come from the Top 25 Finalists. The Top 10 Finalists will be revealed May 3 with the Top 3 being released May 17. The 2023 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year will be announced prior to the NCAA Women’s College World Series.
With Milloy and Rogers’ selection, Lady Vols have appeared on the Top 50 Watch List for the Collegiate Player of the Year award 35 times. Legendary Lady Vol alumna Monica Abbott took home the honor in 2007, and UT has had four players named Top 3 finalists for the award on five occasions—most recently Meghan Gregg in 2017.
Tennessee opens the 2023 season in Clearwater, Florida, February 10 with a doubleheader against Howard and Illinois at the NFCA Leadoff Classic. The Lady Vols’ home opener is slated for March 3 as they welcome App State to Sherri Parker Lee Stadium.
