KANSAS CITY, KS. — Williams College senior Sachi Siegelman (Piedmont, CA) has been named an All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), it was announced on Friday.

Siegelman served on one of the conference's top defensive units this past year, as the Ephs (13-5-3) posted a 0.69 goals against average, allowing only 15 goals over 21 outings. She also chipped in two goals on the offensive end and helped Williams reach the quarterfinals of this year's NCAA Tournament.

"Sachi is a major reason our program has experienced so much recent success," Ephs' head coach Michelyne Pinard said. "She doesn't show up in the statistics, so I'm so glad that she was recognized by other coaches as having an impact that we always knew she has had on our team. She is a tenacious defender, she's a savvy attacker, she's a relentless competitor and most enjoyably, she is incredibly humble in all of her success. We will miss her a great deal next year."

Previously, she was named All-NESCAC and All-New England.

Sigelman is the 8th Eph to earn All-America honors under head coach Michelyne Pinard during Pinard's 10 years at Williams. For the last five seasons the Ephs have had at least one player named to the All-America team.

Senior forward Brett Eisenhart who capped off her Eph career with three consecutive seasons with 10 or more goals graduates as the all-time leading women'ss goal scorer with 42 was named First Teall All-New england.

Of Eisenharts's 11 goals this fall, 6 were game winners. She was previously accorded A First Team All-NESCAC honors for the second straight year.
