December 2006 - Congratulations to Ashley Moore as North Carolina captures it’s 18th NCAA championship.
Ashley was rated among the Top 25 recruits in the nation coming out of high school in 2006 by Soccer Buzz magazine...a very fast flank personality...can play either in the midfield or at striker...coach Anson Dorrance describes Moore as a feisty ball of fire on the field...he praises her determination and her energy...says she will challenge to play right away at Carolina.
A two time All-American, Ashley has been an integral member of both the Under-16 Girls National Team and the Under-17 Women’s National Team in recent years.
February 2007 - Congratulations to Niskayuna senior soccer player Brooke Knowlton who has been named a High School All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
Knowlton, who will play on scholarship at Boston College next fall, scored 40 goals this season, good for third in Section II. She was one of 78 players in the country and the only one from Section II to receive the honor.
Knowlton also was named a NSCAA Girls Youth All-American for her play on regional and national teams.
Those who have seen Knowlton play know her physical style of play and prowess for scoring goals will make her a success at the college level. Many more awards await her in the next few years
