Henderson Rounds Out Women's Soccer Staff
BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland head women's soccer coach Naomi Meiburger announced that former West Virginia University standout and current Western New York Flash player Erica Henderson will serve as a volunteer assistant coach for the 2014 season.
Henderson led West Virginia to two BIG EAST Championships and four-straight NCAA tournament appearances, earning NSCAA All-Northeast Region honors in 2010 and 2011.
"I'm looking forward to having Erica on our staff at Loyola," Meiburger said. "She comes from a great soccer pedigree, having played at a highly respected college program, as well as professionally in the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) and overseas in Iceland. She is a great addition and an important piece of the program as we move forward into the 2014 season. Even more, she is a great person and one I know will continue to uphold the values at Loyola."
The Rochester, New York, native played in 88 matches, scoring 22 points on 10 goals and two assists with West Virginia. The center back helped the Mountaineers' defense to a total of 38 shutouts in her last three seasons, including a program-record 14 shutouts in her junior season.
Henderson's name is listed in the record books for the third most goals in a rookie season (six). She ranks sixth all-time for the most points during a freshman year, combining for 13 points on six goals and one assist in 2008. That same year, Henderson was named to the BIG EAST Championship All-Tournament Team and the Soccer Buzz Freshman All-Mid-Atlantic region team.
Following her collegiate career, Henderson traveled to Iceland to play for Afturelding in the country's highest soccer league, helping the team maintain eligibility for the 2012 season.
A year later, Henderson returned to her home state of New York and was drafted to the Western New York Flash in the fourth round of the 2013 Women's Pro Soccer Draft. In her first season, the Flash finished first among teams in the NWSL, going 10-4 during the season.
Henderson earned her bachelor's degree from West Virginia in sport and exercise psychology in 2012.
