Cassie Ashwell

Assistant Coach

One of the most dangerous strikers in the history of AIC Womens Soccer, Cassie Ashwell returns for her seventh campaign with the team–her third season as an assistant coach after four seasons at forward for the Yellow Jackets.

Ashwells soccer career took off in high school. Playing for her native Agawam High, she was a three-time All-Western Mass selection, including All-Region and All-State in her senior year, 2006.Ashwell then came to AIC in the fall of 2007 to double-major in Criminal Justice and Psychology and made an immediate impact on the field. Playing in every game for her four seasons with the team, the left-footed sharpshooter was named to the Northeast-10 All-Conference Team three times, earning Third-Team honors in 2008 and Second-Team selections in 2009 and 2010, as well as a Third-Team All-Region selection in her junior and senior seasons, and a start in the New England All-Star Game. In her 80 games with the team, she struck for 21 goals and 19 assists, including six game-winning goals, and culminated her playing career by helping to lead the Yellow Jackets to just their second-ever NCAA Tournament appearance and their first ever NCAA Tournament win in her senior season.

Moving behind the bench for the 2011 campaign, Ashwell has continued to provide inspiration to the team. She has worked primarily with the offensive side of the team, helping to improve the attack, and in her second season as an assistant coach, helped lead the team to their first-ever Northeast-10 Regular Season Championship and another NCAA Tournament berth.Ashwell presently resides in Agawam.
