By

CHICAGO — Former Centennial High School standout and two-time Gatorade Player of the Year Sophia Huerta made history this week, becoming the first player in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) to earn Player of the Week honors two weeks in a row. The 2011 graduate and former Santa Clara All-American earned honors after scoring two goals to help her team, the Chicago Red Stars, tie the Houston Dash.

After a win over the reigning NWSL champions F.C. Kansas City on Saturday night, Huerta is now tied for first in the league for most goals scored with five this season.
