Briefs: Henrie's huge game nets Sun Belt honor

Newport Harbor High graduate Kayla Henrie, a junior at Louisiana-Lafayette, was named Co-Player of the Week in the Sun Belt Conference after scoring two goals and posting an assist in a 3-2 overtime women's soccer win on Sunday.

Henrie a midfielder and a three-year starter, scored the game-winner in overtime against Southern Mississippi and leads the Ragin' Cajuns (2-1-1) in goals (two) and points (five).

Henrie moved recently from center midfielder to outside midfielder.

"We moved her to the right side because she sees the field so well and it has gotten her more involved in our offense," Coach Scot Wieland said. "Her vision allows her to be in the right place at the right time."

Henrie scored one goal as a freshman and had one assist as a sophomore.
