Senior (2014):

Rodriguez finished her senior year with 14 points, coming on six goals (the second-most on the squad during the season) and a pair of assists.  She started a career-high 16 games, appearing in 17 overall.  The forward also tied for the team lead with a pair of game-winning assists, coming in wins over Virginia Wesleyan College on August 30th and Case Western Reserve University on November 2nd.  Rodriguez tallied the game-winning goal in the team’s victory over Covenant College on October 7th.  She also had a pair of two-goal games during the season, scoring a pair against both Capital University on September 21st and LaGrange College on October 22nd.  She finished the year with 34 shots, 21 of which were on goal.  Rodriguez ended her three-year Emory career with 16 goals (including two game winners) and 12 assists for 44 points, over the course of 49 games played and 29 starts.  

Junior (2013):

Rodriguez was the Eagles’ top scorer during the 2013 campaign, leading all Emory players in goals, assists and points.  She finished the year with six goals, seven assists and 18 points (each a career-best), ranking 133rd among NCAA Division III players in total assists.  The forward was named the University Athletic Association (UAA) Offensive Athlete of the Week on September 30th, after combining to score two goals and assist on three others during Emory wins over Rhodes on September 28th and Centre on September 29th.  One of her two assists against Centre came on the game-winning goal.  Rodriguez earned the conference honor again on October 28th, after recording the 33rd ‘hat trick’ in the program’s history (and the first by an Eagle since the 2007 campaign) during Emory’s 8-0 win over Agnes Scott on October 23rd.  She notched a pair of assists in her NCAA Tournament debut with Emory on November 16th, helping the Eagles to a 6-1 win over Piedmont.  Rodriguez added a goal during UAA play against Brandeis on October 20th, and assisted on goals against conference rivals Chicago and Carnegie Mellon.  Rodriguez was one of eight Eagles to play in all 21 of the team’s games during the year (including three starts), logging 773 minutes of action and taking a team-high 54 shots and 22 shots on goal.

Sophomore (2012):

Rodriguez made an immediate impact on the squad after her transfer to Emory, before her season was cut short after 11 games due to injury.  She started the last 10 games she appeared in, finishing the year with four goals and three assists for 11 points.  Rodriguez scored in her Emory debut, giving the Eagles a 1-0 lead against top-ranked Messiah College, one of just six goals scored against the Falcons all season.  She registered a career-best five points during Emory's 9-0 win over the University of the South on September 15th, assisting on the game-winning goal and scoring two of her own.  Rodriguez also assisted on a goal against Johns Hopkins University on September 7th, and scored a goal against University Athletic Association (UAA) rival Chicago on September 29th.  She launched 35 shots during the season, 15 of which were on goal.
