 Lee women's soccer forward, Riley Henry was named the Gulf South Conference Offensive Player of the Week the league office announced on Tuesday.

Henry scored both of Lady Flame goals in a 2-1 victory at Cedarville on Saturday. The game-winning goal came in the 85th minute to seal a hard-fought road victory for the 3-0 Lady Flames.

"Henry had an excellent week of play," said Lee head coach Chris Hennessey. "She skilled on the ball and utilizes a perfect blend of power and speed to put herself in position to score.
She has stepped up early this season and she will be a key reason for the success we experience as a team."
