Andover’s Ashlin Lynch-Athlete Spotlight-Presented by Shelter Insurance, Jodi Ocadiz

Andover’s Ashlin Lynch was a first team all-league soccer player for the Trojans last season, and was ready to lead this team to victory for her senior year.

“My favorite memory from this season was being the team captain,” Lynch said. “I left leading this team. It was such a fun and competitive year of soccer.”

Looking back on her four years of Andover soccer, Lynch can confidently say this season had the biggest impact on her as a player and a person.

“The season went better than I had hoped,” Lynch said. “Our team put forth their best effort every game. This has definitely been my favorite season out of my four years at Andover High School. Our team chemistry is amazing. All the girls understand one another and get along really well.”

After a few losses to a rival in the past, Lynch and the team were ready to meet them again in the regional game.

“My goal for the season was first to win regionals,” Lynch said. “Winning regionals against Eisenhower, who has ended our season in the past, was an unforgettable feeling. I could not have been prouder of our team this season.”

Lynch plans to stay close to home after graduation and further her education and sports journey.

“After high school I plan on attending Butler Community College to continue my academic and athletic career,” Lynch said.
