LOS ANGELES - Sophomore goalkeeper Valerie Henderson was named to the Soccer Buzz Team of the Week on Wednesday for her efforts in last week's shutouts over No. 9 Cal and No. 17 Stanford.
Henderson, from Orinda, Calif., posted her sixth and seventh shutouts of the season in those two contests. She helped the Bruins register a 2-0 victory over No. 9 Cal on Friday, finishing with a match-high four saves. She added three more in UCLA's 0-0 tie with the Cardinal on Sunday.
Henderson improved her goals against average to a miniscule 0.39 on the season. She has also helped the Bruins post six-straight shutouts, and has not allowed a goal since a 3-2 double-overtime victory over USC on Oct. 7.
She has given up just six goals in 17 appearances this year.
