The repeat All-Metro Player of the Year led the No. 1 Eagles (18-3) to a second straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship, finishing her stellar four-year career with 85 goals and 57 assists.

This season, Spivey contributed 19 goals and 14 assists while providing difference-making, two-way play in the middle of the field. A dynamic player since her freshman year, Spivey developed into a more complete player with each season and added strong leadership qualities along the way. 

"Ashley is a great soccer player with a great soccer mind," McDonogh coach Harry Canellakis said. "Often players are judged on the goals they score, but she worked hard on both sides of the ball and developed into a strong leader.  The players looked to her to motivate them and she also led by example."

Spivey, a member of the U.S. under-17 national team, will play at Maryland next fall.
