Trio of Lady Raiders named to All-Area Girls soccer team


Jan. 1, 2014 —

Grizzle and Lawrence County’s Brett Jenks shared Coach of the Year honors after both teams reached the Elite Eight.

Russell, which had seven first team All-Region players, defeated South Laurel in the opening round of the State Tournament before falling to eventual state champion Notre Dame.

The Lady Devils started five seniors, including All-Area selections Heather Hencye (11 goals, 13 assists) and sweeper Jennifer Sloan. Hencye was second team All-State; Sloan honorable mention.

Lawrence County’s program, only in its fifth year, will also return several key players after back-to-back trips to the state quarterfinals. The Lady Bulldogs outscored 15th Region opponents 95-7 this season.

Lawrence County finished 20-6, with three of the losses coming against top 16th Region programs Russell and Ashland. Each beat the Lady Bulldogs 6-1 during Lawrence County’s Homecoming week, when the team played six games.

Lawrence County graduates only one starter and will be looking to make an even bigger push next season.

Leading the way will be returning All-Area players Shelby Hay and Mollie Workman. Hay amassed 38 goals and 11 assists as a junior and was named second team All-State. Workman, who finished with 24 goals and 14 assists, received honorable mention All-State recognition.

Of the 16 players on the All-Area Team, 11 will be back.

Charity Collins (17 goals, 11 assists), Aidan Young (21 goals, 5 assists) and senior defender Emily Bond represent Ashland. Collins and Young were honorable mention All-State.
