Coral Hendrix, a senior soccer player has been playing for four years. She serves as a defensive star who was selected to be on the All-Conference team last year. She is the captain of the soccer team and is always trying to be a great leader.
“I try to encourage my teammates any way I can and try to help them grow as a player and as a person,” said Coral.

Coral plans to keep playing club soccer at Virginia Tech next year.

“Coral is a leader, she’s been a captain for two years, with her knowledge of the game and her with leadership qualities, and she makes our team what it is,” said coach Christine Thornton.

Coral helps her team on and off the field in as many ways as she can.

“On and off the field, Coral is good at keeping me and the rest of the team calm and collected so that there are few conflicts and the communication between everyone is improved,” said senior Emma Rafferty.
