Third-generation Bronco Bianca Henninger '12 earned accolades this fall from ESPN.com as being the best goalie in the country. And she made All-American.
Prior to Henninger's senior season, ESPN.com released an article titled, "Santa Clara's Henninger has no equal"—virtually speaking for itself. It tells of Henninger's rise to not only local stardom around Santa Clara, but to becoming the 2010 U.S. Soccer's Young Female Athlete of the Year. This great honor followed her stellar performance at the 2010 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Germany, where she earned the prestigious Adidas Golden Glove Award.
The ESPN article foreshadowed Henninger's final season. She made 18 starts and allowed only 13 goals, good for a 0.72 GAA, which was second in the West Coast Conference. She also made 60 saves and recorded four shutouts despite battling injuries all season.
Following the 2011 season, Henninger and Bronco teammate Julie Johnston '14 were both named All-American—Johnston to the First Team and Henninger to the Third.
