College career

Hendrix played college soccer at Southern Miss from 2011 to 2014. [1]

Club career

In 2016 Hendrix attended trials in the Netherlands with SC Heerenveen and AFC Ajax, but was not contracted by either team. Instead she played in the summer season with Atlanta Silverbacks and ended 2016 in Scotland with Glasgow Rangers. Keen to keep playing when the Scottish season ended, she signed for Swiss club FC Staad in January 2017. [2] [3]

Hendrix represented Fylkir in the 2017 Úrvalsdeild, then joined Brescia ahead of the 2017–18 Serie A season. With the Biancoazzurre she was a runner-up in the league and the cup and played in the UEFA Champions League. She signed for English FA WSL club West Ham in July 2018. [4]

Hendrix was acquired by Racing Louisville in December 2020. [5]

In February 2022 Hendrix signed for reigning A-League Women Champions Melbourne Victory. [6] Hendrix arrival at the Victory signalled a turnaround in their fortunes. She scored on debut in a 1-0 over the Newcastle Jets and dramatically changed a leaky defence. Prior to the Grand Final, Victory lost just two of eight games since her arrival, conceding 0.9 goals per game as opposed to the average of 2.2 goals per game conceded in the six games prior. [7] Victory were crowned Women's A-League Champions on March 27, 2022 after beating Sydney FC in the Grand Final. [8]

On 21 July 2022, Reading announced the signing of Hendrix from Melbourne Victory on a two-year contract. [9]
