December 1 , 2006

AMHERST, MA – A handful of Amherst College women’s soccer players were named to the 2006 adidas/NSCAA Women’s All-New England teams this afternoon, including a trio of seniors, and two promising young stars.

Senior tri-captain Piper Crowell (San Rafael, CA), senior Amy Armstrong (Avon, CT) and sophomore Alanna Darling (Charlton, MA) were all named to the All-New England First Team, following their amazing NCAA Tournament run to the Round of 8. Armstrong was also named the NESCAC Women’s Soccer Player of the Year for her wonderful senior campaign.

Senior tri-captain Lesley Pruzansky (Saratoga, CA) received second team honors, while Meg Murphy (Springfield, MA) was named to the third team as the reigning NESCAC Rookie of the Year.

With five players named to the three teams, Amherst outnumbers any other school in the New England region this season.
