Potsdam's Rogers Earns Conference Volleyball Awards

POTSDAM - SUNY Potsdam freshman men's volleyball player Zaire Rogers(Cheektowaga, N.Y./Cheektowaga) has earned three North Eastern Athletic Conference at the completion of the Bears' first ever season. He was named the league's Defensive Player of the Year, Co-Rookie of the Year and claimed a spot on the all-conference second team. Rogers led the NEAC in digs-per-set with 2.51 and was second in digs with 133. The outside hitter was also in the conference's top-10 in nearly every other major statistical category. He was eighth in kills-per-set (2.34) and 10th in kills (124). Rogers finished sixth in service aces (22) and he was tied for 10th in assists (38). The Bears were 4-13 (1-3 NEAC) during the 2020 season, which was cut short with 10 matches remaining. Season highlights included winning the program's first ever match (vs. Northern Vermont-Johnson on Jan. 24), winning the program's first ever conference match (vs. Wilson on Feb. 8) and winning the program's first ever home match (vs. Northern Vermont-Johnson on March 4). Potsdam accomplished quite a bit in its first season with a roster that contained only one player with previous collegiate volleyball experience and three Bears soccer players. The program looks to be even stronger in 2021.
