Cross Country, Track & Field
Class of 1993
James Rogerson was a four-year letterman in cross country and track and field. As a harrier, he earned PAC MVP honors in 1993.
On the track is where Rogerson truly left his mark at Bethany. He was a two-time PAC MVP, winning that accolade in 1990 and 1993. Rogerson won seven PAC titles during his tenure, capturing first place in the 110 high hurdles in 1990, 1991 and 1993, while crossing first in the 400 intermediate hurdles from 1991-1993. He also earned Second Team All-PAC three times in his career and set the school record in the 200-meter dash that stood for 14 years until it was broken in the spring of 2006.
Rogerson graduated cum laude from Bethany in 1993 with a Bachelor’s degree in economics, as well as minors in accounting and marketing, and went to work for RPS (FedEx Ground). After serving for six years as an operations manager, Rogerson moved on to Limitedbrands in 1999 and is currently the logistics manager for international transportation.
Rogerson, who graduated from John Marshall High School in Glendale, W.Va., currently resides in Granville, Ohio, with his wife, Christine (Haught) Rogerson, who was inducted into Bethany’s Athletic Hall of Fame last year. They have three children: Hunter, Chase and Theron.
