Harmeling Named NESCAC Player of the Week

March 30, 2004

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College junior Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA) was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week on Monday after tallying four goals and six assists in Saturday’s 18-10 conference win at 17th-ranked Colby, followed by a three-goal, three-assist outburst in Sunday’s 17-6 victory at NESCAC foe Bates.

In only her first season of collegiate lacrosse, Harmeling leads the NESCAC in points (37), goals (21) and assists (16), helping the second-ranked Jeffs improve to 5-0 overall and 2-0 in conference play. A three-sport standout, Harmeling was the NESCAC Player of the Year and a First-Team All-America in women’s soccer. She’s also the top women’s squash player at Amherst, finishing her junior season ranked 31st nationally in the final College Squash Association (CSA) Individual Rankings.

The defending national champion Amherst women’s lacrosse team returns to action Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at Trinity College.
