Coach’s Quote -- “Ashleigh is one of the most talented players I have seen. I think her biggest strength is her knowledge of the game. Even when her shots are not sharp during a particular game, she is still hard to beat because she knows how to switch things up and play to her strengths. She is a great leader for the same reason. She helps me quite a bit with coaching the other players.” – Bryan Skoog, Tennis Coach
