Henrietta High School will retire the No. 17 volleyball jersey of Jessica Rogers during a ceremony Saturday following the varsity Lady Cats match against Jacksboro.

Rogers, 20, was killed Aug. 9 in a car wreck on Interstate 20 west of Eastland.

Rogers was a sophomore student athlete at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, attending the school on a volleyball scholarship. She was a 2010 graduate of Henrietta High.

Rogers played varsity volleyball for four years at Henrietta High School. In 2008, she was named District 5-2A Defensive MVP, and earned the title of District MVP Hitter in 2009. Rogers was an all-state selection both years.

She signed her letter of intent to play at Hardin-Simmons in 2010.

Rogers earned the HSU Cowgirl Spirit Award in 2010, and the American Southwest Conference Honor Roll in 2011.

Saturday’s schedule begins with JV play at 10 a.m., and will likely last until noon, followed by the varsity.
