Coach Terrill on Ashley Lowdermilk: “Ashley was the first player in the 2012 class to commit to us. She plays at IMG so she didn’t play any high school soccer. She just played straight for IMG and played at a really high level. She’s multi-talented – mostly a mid-fielder but we’ve seen her play at a variety of different positions. We think she’s been extremely successful. She’s been on both North Carolina and Florida ODP. She’s captain and MVP of IMG. She’s just a good fit for the university, great kid, and a player that we’re going to need in the midfield to kind of step up to the next level and this is a kid who can actually step in and help us be able to get to the next level."
