PROVO, Utah – Many soccer fans, especially those living in Provo, know the name Ashley Hatch. As a senior this past fall, she led the Brigham Young University women’s soccer team to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament. She scored a total of 47 goals during her career at BYU, and 19 of those goals were scored during her senior year.
Though her four years of eligibility at BYU are over, Hatch is not ready to hang up her cleats.
Last October, Hatch had the opportunity to play with the United States women’s national soccer team when they took on Switzerland at the Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. Since then, Hatch has attended three national camps.
Hatch was very humble when talking about her camp experiences.
“It’s always an honor, you know, any time you get invited to a U.S. camp or to even just kind of play or interact with U.S. coaches or other players,” Hatch said.
Hatch hopes to one day officially be on the U.S. national team. The next opportunity she has to put on a U.S. jersey is this upcoming week in a tournament happening in Spain.
The U.S. coaching staff has not released the official roster listing the players who will be playing in the tournament, but Hatch hopes to be on that plane.
