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.

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