Harmeling Named ECAC Player of the Week

March 31, 2004

AMHERST, MA - Already named the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week on Monday, Amherst College junior Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA) was named the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Player of the Week on Wednesday as well. Harmeling led defending national champion Amherst to a pair of wins over the weekend, 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.
