It shouldn’t be too hard to pick out Ashley Fleck on the soccer field during a match … more often than not, she’ll be the one making something happen.

The Eagle’s Landing center striker is the team’s leading scorer in this, her third season suiting up for the varsity squad.

The junior star-in-the-making has both the physical tools and the intangibles — a combination that should continue to push her game into another gear.

“She is aggressive and confident,” said Lady Golden Eagles coach Erin Mackey. “She has a commanding presence on the field.

“And she understands the fundamentals of the sport — from working the ball down the field to the techniques used to battle a ball away from a defender to shutting down an attack.”

Moreover, Fleck is also known for taking her responsibilities as a team captain seriously and with great pride.

The same can be said of her classroom duties. The Lady Golden Eagle’s GPA is currently tops in her class.
