Harmeling, Wojcik Earn NEWISA All-New England Honors

December 5, 2003

AMHERST, MA - After leading the Jeffs to a 12-4-4 record and their second New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Championship in the last three years, Amherst College junior forward Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA) and sophomore defender Lyn Wojcik (E. Brookfield, MA) were named Division III All-New England by the New England Womenís Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA). Harmeling was a first-team pick while Wojcik earned second-team honors.

Harmeling, the NESCAC Player of the Year and a first-team all-conference selection, had one of the most prolific offensive campaigns in Amherst history, shattering a pair of single-season school records with 19 goals and 42 points, both tops in the NESCAC. She cemented her outstanding season with a standout performance in the NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament, scoring the teamís lone goal in a 1-1 tie with Williams in the NESCAC semifinals, which the Jeffs won in penalty kicks, and shattering a school record with her 16th, 17th and 18th scoring strikes in a 6-0 NESCAC Championship win over Bates. Her three goals in the contest were a NESCAC Tournament record and assured the Jeffs a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Transferring from Harvard University in 2002, Harmeling was a Second-Team All-NESCAC selection as a sophomore, finishing sixth in the conference in goals per game (0.60) and ninth in points per game (1.27).

Wojcik was the top defender on an Amherst team that allowed just 18 goals in 20 games with shutout wins over Middlebury, Mt. Holyoke, Wesleyan, Williams, Bates and Bridgewater St., and scoreless ties against Trinity and Tufts. She was at her best in the postseason, during which the Jeffs surrendered just four goals in six games, marching to the NCAA New England Regional title game.
