Houston Dash forward Melissa Henderson announced her retirement on Wednesday, the team announced.

“With a heavy, yet peaceful heart, I close a chapter of my life that has brought me so much joy these last 23 years,” Henderson said in a Dash press release. “To my family, teammates, coaches, friends and fans – thank you. You have been a part of God’s journey for me from the beginning. Your love, support and encouragement have become my backbone throughout my career.”

Henderson spent five seasons in the NWSL and was a member of the Dash since July 2014 after being traded to Houston from FC Kansas City. She tallied two assists in her 37 games with the Dash. While with FC Kansas City, she scored a playoff goal in the Blues’ 2013 semifinal loss to Portland Thorns FC.
