COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – For the third time in her record-setting Adams State career, senor Jessica Hellweg (Island Lake, Ill.) has been honored as a member of the All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) Second Team, league officials announced Wednesday.
Previously a second team selection in 2009 and 2010 as well, Hellweg become the first Adams State player to ever earn RMAC accolades three times.
Hellweg was the Grizzlies’ leader in goals, points and assists this season. Her 10 goals ranked sixth in the RMAC, while her 24 points ranked eighth and four assists ranked 14th.
Those numbers boosted her into the career lead at ASC for goals (24), points (56), and with eight assists she now finishes her career ranked second in ASC annals.
Hellweg also tallied three game-winning goals this season, fifth most in the league, which raised her career total to an ASC leading eight.
During her final season Hellweg recorded four mutli-goal games, including a 3-goal outing in a 5-1 ASC win over Texas-Permian Basin on Sept. 9. Her hat trick is tied for the second most goals in a single game in ASC history.
On Oct. 23, Hellweg led the Grizzlies back from a 2-0 deficit against then 19th-ranked Colorado Mines, scoring twice in the final 10 minutes to force overtime. The Grizzlies and Orediggers played two extra period of scoreless soccer, which gave ASC is first win or tie against a nationally-ranked opponent since the 2006 season.
This past Sunday, Hellweg capped her career by scoring the game-winner in overtime against Nebraska-Kearney, which allowed ASC to match a single-season program record with seven wins.
Hellweg also concludes her career as the all-time ASC leader with 91 shots on goal, and ranks second with 174 total shots attempted.
