Roehrig arrived in Maryville prior to the 2010 season following a four-year career at the University of Minnesota that spanned the 2005-08 seasons. She is working on her master's degree at Northwest after earning a double-major in business and marketing education and human resource development in Minneapolis.


Roehrig helped lead the Gophers to four NCAA tournaments and a 96-36 record in her four seasons. She finished with 1,246 career kills - 14th most in program history - and 354 career blocks. Roehrig's 125 solo blocks is fourth on the Gophers' all-time list.


Roehrig was named to the 2006 NCAA Regional All-Tournament Team after averaging more than three kills per game in getting Minnesota to the Elite Eight. She was twice named to the Big Ten's All-Academic Team.


Roehrig graduated from Papillion LaVista High School in Papillion, Neb., where she was named all-state, all-city and all-conference in her final three years. She was a All-American in 2003 and 2004 and was a 2003 finalist for National Class Player of the Year. Roehrig won two state titles in high school, finished second once and broke Nebraska's single-season record after recording 812 kills as a junior.


It's no surprise to learn that Roehrig comes from an athletic background. Her father, Pat, played basketball at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Her sister, Kelli, played on Michigan State's national runner-up women's basketball team in 2004-05. Roehrig intends to play women's basketball at Northwest this winter in her final year of eligibility.
