Southland Conference Player and Forward of the Year Lucy Ashworth, along with Newcomer of the Year and teammate Esther Okoronkwo, appeared on the first team. A second-team all-region honoree, Henry used her speed to anchor a Demons back line that held opponents to just over eight shots per game in Southland regular-season matches. She limited quality chances as well with just about half of those shots going on goal. Henry played a vital role in the team advancing to the Southland Conference Tournament championship match for the first time since 2005. Lamar’s Juana Plata and Abilene Christian’s Michelle Mulrooney earned spots on the all-region third team. Mulrooney guided a defense that allowed just 13 goals in conference games and 13.8 shots per game in all contests with just 41 percent of those shots on frame. Plata logged 900 minutes on the back line in Southland play and tallied three assists. Third Team Pos.
