Ashburn, VA (December 16, 2016) – Stone Bridge alumni and JMU Senior Ashley Herndon of the James Madison women’s soccer team added another honor to her lengthy career list, earning Second Team All-Mid-Atlantic Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
Herndon, who graduated early in December to pursue opportunities in professional soccer, led the high-powered JMU offense in goals (11), points (28), shots (82), shots on goal (35) and game-winning goals (5) in 2016, taking home JMU’s first CAA Player of the Year honors since Corky Julien in 2008.
Adding to her 2016 exploits, Herndon continued her march up the JMU career leaderboards in her final season at JMU. She concludes her career fourth all-time in program history in career goals (37), fifth in assists (27) and third in points (101) after becoming just the fourth Duke to ever rack up 100 points in her career.
The Dukes finished 9-11 in 2016, including a 5-4 mark in league play, as JMU reached the Colonial Athletic Association semifinals for the fourth consecutive season. Herndon and the other five seniors that finished their careers in 2016 advanced to the semifinals in all four of their seasons at JMU.
