Armstrong and Crowell Named to adidas/NSCAA All-America Teams

December 7 , 2006

AMHERST, MA – Amherst College women’s soccer players Amy Armstrong (Avon, CT) and Piper Crowell (San Rafael, CA) were named to the 2006 adidas/NSCAA All-America Teams, with Armstrong receiving First Team honors and Crowell earning a Second Team nod.  

Armstrong has put together an exceptional resume from the 2006 season. The senior forward finished the season leading the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) in game-winning goals (7) while finishing second in points (28) and goals scored (12). For her success, Armstrong was named to the All-NESCAC First Team and given NESCAC Player of the Year honors, while also being recognized for her success in the classroom by earning All-Academic honors.

Armstrong was not just recognized within the NESCAC, as she was also named to both the All-New England First Team and All-America First Team by d3kicks.com. Most recently, Armstrong capped off her season by earning adidas/NSCAA First-Team All-New England and First-Team All-American honors.

Crowell’s success was very similar to that of Armstrong. Leading the NESCAC in goals against average (0.44) and save percentage (0.914), Crowell was named to the All-NESCAC First Team, while also being recognized for her academic success, earning All-Academic honors. For the week of October 17, Crowell was named the NESCAC Player of the Week.

The senior goalkeeper was further recognized nationally for her outstanding season, earning First-Team All-New England honors from both d3kicks.com and adidas/NSCAA, adding Second-Team All-American honors from both organizations.

Both Armstrong and Crowell were selected to participate in the New England Women’s Intercollegiate Soccer Association Soccer Bowl game this past Sunday at Merrimack College in North Andover, Mass. The game features soccer players from Divisions I, II and III, and is used to honor four-year excellence in women’s soccer in New England.
