Brandley nabs All-Region MVP honors

Coaches didn’t have to look any further than East Coweta and Newnan when it came time to this year’s All-Region 3-AAAAA girls soccer team.

Of the 13 selections to represent this year’s All-Region team, a dozen were from county lineups, split equally between this year’s champion Lady Cougars and runner-up Lady Indians.

East Coweta’s Nikki Brandley earned region MVP honors after leading the Lady Indians in scoring en route to the team’s 13-6 record and a trip to the playoffs.

Brandley spent the year as both a defender and a forward on this year’s team and was selected All-Region at both positions.

Newnan head coach Frankie Henderson earned coach of the year honors after leading his team to region and Coweta Cup titles.

Defenders Junior Anna Lawerence and freshman Morgan Robeson represented the Lady Cougars, while Brandley and junior Katie Sutherland made it for the Lady Indians.

Newnan goalie Rebecca Whitlock concluded her varsity career with 11 shutouts while also named to the team.

She was joined by senior Julie Whatley, who was among three Lady Cougar midfielders earning All-Region honors. Freshmen Caroline Thomas and Teghan Angilum also joined Whatley.

East Coweta sophomore Lynnsey Danford was also selected in the midfield.

Up front, Brandley was joined by ECHS teammate Serenity Waters. Newnan senior Jordan Ponce was selected from the Lady Cougars.
