SPARTANBURG, S.C. - USC Upstate women's soccer player Ashlee Barrow was named to the 2009 Atlantic Sun Conference All-Freshman team, the conference office announced today.
Barrow, who is a natural defender, scored the first goal for the Spartans in 2009. Her goal came in the match against Garder-Webb (9/3). The goal scored by Barrow came just four minutes into the match, after she stole the ball and put her shot, from 10 yards out, past the GWU keeper.
"It is not surprising to me to see Ashlee earn this recognition," said head women's soccer coach Kendall Reyes. "I felt very strongly during the recruiting process that she had the ability and the desire to be an impact player for our program and she would make her mark in the conference."
"Ashlee started every game for us and played an incredible amount of tough, passionate soccer for us. She is relentless in her work ethic and she has a strong commitment to our program," added Reyes. "I am proud of what she has done and it shows as she received her first A-Sun award."
Barrow, though just 5-1, used her small stature and speed to attempt to impact the game no matter where she was on the field. Numerous times in 2009 she tracked down loose balls to prevent potential scoring chances for Upstate foes.
