Harmeling, Montigny Named NSCAA/adidas All-New England

December 13, 2004

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College seniors Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA/Phillips Andover) and Tracy Montigny (E. Granby, CT/East Granby) were each named adidas All-New-England by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) on Monday. Harmeling was a first-team selection, while Montigny earned third-team honors.

A First-Team All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) selection for the second straight season, Harmeling led the Jeffs in scoring with six goals and an assist despite missing the first four games 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 All-America, First-Team New England Women’s Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) All-New England, NESCAC Player of the Year and First-Team All-NESCAC honors. As a sophomore, after transferring from Harvard University, Harmeling earned Second-Team All-NESCAC plaudits after finishing eighth in the conference in points (19) and sixth in goals (9).

An outstanding women’s lacrosse player as well, Harmeling was named the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III Attacker of the Year, First-Team IWLCA/US Lacrosse All-America, First-Team All-America and First-Team IWLCA All-New England after leading Amherst to the 2004 national semifinals. She also captains Amherst’s women’s squash team, where she’s ranked 34th in the latest College Squash Association (CSA) Women’s Individual Rankings.

Montigny earned First-Team All-NESCAC honors 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 victory 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 lead the Jeffs to a conference title and their first-ever trip to the Division III National Championship game.
