PAWTUCKET, R.I. – Junior Loren Henderson was named the Little East Conference (LEC) Women's Soccer Goalkeeper of the Week for the week ending September 1.
Henderson helped lead the Spartans to a 1-1-0 opening week with a stellar performance in goal. She earned her third career shutout on Sunday in a 1-0 overtime victory over Norwich.
On Friday, she made 10 saves and was only beaten on penalty kicks (one on a PK rebound) in a 2-1 loss at Plattsburgh. Through two games, the Rutland, Vermont native leads the LEC in saves with 12. She also boasts a .857 save percentage and a 0.95 goals-against average.
She was only tested twice in Sunday's win over Norwich, but she stood by as the Spartans' 33rd shot of the game in the 100th minute finally cracked the scoreboard and earned the golden goal victory.
Castleton returns to action on Wednesday as it will host Westfield State in a non-conference matchup at Applejack Field in Manchester, Vermont at 7 p.m.
