Harmeling, Montigny Earn First-Team All-NESCAC Honors

November 12, 2004

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College seniors Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA/Phillips Andover Acad.) and Tracy Montigny (East Granby, CT/East Granby) were each named First-Team Women’s Soccer All-NESCAC on Friday. Harmeling finished sixth in the conference in goals (0.55/gm.) and seventh in scoring (1.18 pts./gm.), while Montigny tied for sixth in assists (0.33/gm.).

Harmeling led the Jeffs in scoring with six goals and an assist despite missing the first four games of the season due to injury. As a junior, she shattered a pair of single-season school records with 19 goals and 42 points, both tops in the NESCAC, en route to First-Team NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) All-America, First-Team NEWISA (New England Women’s Intercollegiate Soccer Association) All-New England, NESCAC Player of the Year and First-Team All-NESCAC honors. As a sophomore, she received Second-Team All-NESCAC recognition after finishing eighth in the conference in points (19) and sixth in goals (9). Transferring from Harvard University in 2002, she finished her junior season as the No. 30 squash player in the nation, and earned Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III Attacker of the Year, First-Team IWLCA/US Lacrosse All-America, First-Team All-America, First-Team IWLCA All-New England and NCAA All-Tournament Team honors, leading the Amherst women’s lacrosse team to the national semifinals.

Montigny earned her first all-conference award after tallying two goals and a team-best five assists. Both scores were game-winners - the first in a 2-0 shutout win over Mt. Holyoke and the second in a narrow 3-2 victory over Conn. College. Playing every game in her four-year career, she compiled 21 goals, 18 assists, 60 points and six game-winning scores in 72 appearances. As a junior, she earned NESCAC Player of the Week honors after tallying the game-winner in a 1-0 non-league win at Mt. Holyoke and finishing with two goals and an assist in a lopsided 6-0 win over visiting Little Three rival Wesleyan. As a first-year, she finished sixth in the conference with 27 points on 11 goals and five assists and helped the Jeffs to a conference title and their first-ever trip to the Division III National Championship game.
