Field Hockey Introduces Assistant Coach

May 12, 2014

WASHINGTON – On Monday, the Georgetown field hockey program introduced Shelly Montgomery as the squad’s new assistant coach.

"I am thrilled to announce the addition of Shelly Montgomery to our coaching staff,” said Georgetown Head Coach Shannon Soares. “She had a decorated career as a student-athlete at American University and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will only help our program and student-athletes reach new heights. Shelly's energy and passion parallels the culture we plan to create here at Georgetown; I'm very excited to have her on the Hilltop."

A recent graduate of American University, Montgomery played four years for the field hockey program amassing a wealth of awards and accolades in her decorated career.

Montgomery, a Fairfax, Va. native, appeared in 75 games, making 58 starts in her collegiate career with 40 goals, 13 assists and 93 points, which ranks her ninth all-time at American. Her 40 goals put her at eighth all-time.

Montgomery was selected as a Second Team All-American as a senior, finishing third in the Patriot League with 24 points. She earned the conference’s Offensive Player of the Year award and an All-Patriot League First Team selection. She also received the 2013 Patriot League Tournament Most Valuable Player Award.

She was selected to the conference’s First Team and All-Tournament Team as well as American’s Most Valuable Player award in each of her last two seasons (2012, 2013).

In addition to her on-field accomplishments, Montgomery also made the NFHCA Division I National Academic Squad and Patriot League Academic Honor Roll in her sophomore, junior and senior seasons.


 

 

Montgomery joins Soares, who was named the Field Hockey Head Coach in mid-February.
