The Lakewood, Colo., native started all 22 games last season, despite breaking her nose in an exhibition game against the Canadian U-17 National Team on the opening day of preseason.
Hogan notched the game-winning goal against Iowa on her only shot of the contest. Her second goal of the season came in the win over No. 9 Texas A&M on Oct. 24.
She ranked second on the team with nine assists on the season, trailing only Jenna Cooper's 14 assists. Hogan posted at least one assist in six games in 2003, including three game-winning assists (Mississippi State, Iowa State and Missouri).
She nearly tripled her shots from her freshman season, after the coaches asked her to be more goal-oriented in 2003. She launched 26 shots as a sophomore compared to just nine attempts during her freshman campaign.
Coming off an explosive prep career, Hogan saw immediate playing time in the Husker midfield. Hogan started the Huskers’ final 12 games of the 2002 season, and gave Nebraska a solid boost in the midfield late in the year.
She scored her first collegiate goal in a 4-0 win over Texas Tech, and accumulated five points during her freshman season. Her other three points came on assists against Indiana State, Colorado and Kansas in the Big 12 Tournament. She took nine shots on the season, including six shots on goal.

She was named honorable-mention all-state and was a unanimous first-team all-conference pick in her final two prep seasons.

As the team's most valuable player, Hogan led Wheat Ridge to a third-place Jeffco 5A Conference finish.
