AMHERST, MA - Amherst College placed two players - womenís soccer junior forward Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA) and menís soccer senior quad-captain Frank Perry (Hartford, CT) - on respective 2003 Division III adidas menís and womenís soccer All-America teams, as selected and announced by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

Harmeling, a first-team All-America after earning New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Player of the Year, First-Team All-NESCAC and First-Team All-New England honors, led the Jeffs to a 12-4-4 record and their second conference title in the last three years. She 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 on 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).

Perry, a three-time All-NESCAC pick and the 2000 NESCAC Rookie of the Year, was a Second-Team NSCAA All-America selection, leading the Jeffs and finishing eighth in the conference in scoring with 19 points on nine goals and one assist.
