CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Meg Casscells-Hamby and Erika Garcia of the Harvard women’s soccer team continue to receive postseason awards after both sophomores were named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Mid-Atlantic Region third team, earlier this week.

Casscells-Hamby led Harvard in both goals and points with six goals and three assists for 15 points through 15 games.  The Winter Park, Fla. native netted the game-winning goal against Ivy League rival Yale in fourth minute of overtime to give the Crimson a 1-0 win Sept. 29.

Garcia has played in every game since she has joined the Crimson and has recorded two goals and five points.  The Carson City, Nev. native started all 17 games on defense this fall and helped the Crimson post seven shutouts and hold its opponents to 1.35 goals per game.

Both athletes were honored with All-Ivy League recognition this November with Casscells-Hamby being named to the All-Ivy first team and Garcia joining two other Crimson on the second team. The duo helped the Crimson to a 9-5-3 overall record and a 3-3-1 Ivy League mark in the 2012 season.
