CGA’s Shipley earns spot on Ashland soccer team

ASHLAND, Ohio — Kylee Shipley of Culver has earned a spot on the Ashland University women’s soccer team. Shipley, a 2011 Culver Girls Academy graduate, is majoring in exercise science.
A four-year player at forward and midfield with CGA soccer, Shipley helped lead the Lady Eagles to three straight Argos Sectional championships and a state final four appearance during her sophomore season in 2008. She was also a four-year player with the CGA girls basketball team, finishing with 1,215 points and helping power the program to its first sectional championship in 15 years as a senior last season.
The Ashland University women’s soccer team is led by second-year head coach Glenn Francis. In his first full recruiting season as Ashland University’s women’s soccer coach, Glenn Francis signed nine newcomers to the program for the 2011 fall season. This year the team was picked by the league’s coaches to finish tied for third in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference South. The AU women’s soccer team will have its next home game on Friday at 2 p.m. against GLIAC Tiffin at Ferguson Field.
