Former Arcata Tiger Avary Henry is enjoying an outstanding debut season at the collegiate level in women’s golf.

The 2019 H-DNL champion is playing for Division-III Aurora University in Illinois and on Thursday was named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Athlete of the Week after a couple of big rounds over the past five days.

Henry has been among the Spartans’ team leaders all season and shot a team-best round of 83 at a three-team event at St. Andrew’s Country Club in Illinois on Sunday.

The former Tiger finished third overall on the day, leading the Spartans to the team victory.

She followed that on Tuesday with another round of 83 at the Randall Oaks Golf Club for a fourth-place individual finish at a six-team event.

Henry is back in action today, returning to St. Andrew’s Country Club to compete in the Benedictine Eagle Invitational.
