Ashley Clark hails from Cary, NC, a hotbed of soccer in the mid-atlantic. She played her club soccer for Triangle Footbal Club (TFC), and played her prep soccer at Panther Creek High School. At Panther Creek she led the team in goals scored (28) and assists (9) in her senior year. A three-time All-Conference soccer selection at Panther Creek, Ashley also lettered in basketball for the Catamounts.

In addition to TFC, Ashley was also a member of the North Carolina YSA Olympic Development Program state team, and in 2010 was named to the Super Y National Tournament team. Over her youth soccer career Ashley was invited to Super Y National Camps several times, and with TFC she played in the NCYSA State Cup finals multiple times.


Ashely continued her soccer career in college joining the Campbell University(CU) Fighting Camels, where she immediately made an impact starting all 22 games her freshman year. That year she was named to the the Big South First Team All-Conference and All-Freshman teams. Still in her freshman year, Ashley finished her season tied for second in Big South for number of goals and assists, was second in Big South for points and game-winning goals, earned Big South Attacking Player of the week twice, and broke the Big South single-season shot record with 102.

 

By the end of her senior year, Ashely had accumulated 114 offensive points scoring 46 goals and assisting 22 times while taking 358 shots. Her 106 shots in her senior year eclipsed the record she set a freshman. Ashley earned many accolades during her time at CU, including a Big South First Team All-Conference nomination in each of her four years, multiple Big South Attacking Player of the Week honors (3 times in her senior year alone), was named to the Big South Presidentail Honor Roll, captured the Big South Attacking Player of the Year award, received NCCSIA first-team honors, and was named to the NSCAA Division I All-Southeast Region second-team.

 

During her time at CU, Ashely also played for the Seattle Sounders' women's club in the USL W-League. The USL W-League is a developmental organization that allows high school and collegiate players to compete alongside established international players while maintaining their collegiate eligibility. In June 2015 she was named to the W-League Team of The Week.

 

After a standout career at Campbell, Ashley signed for Tierps IF in Division I of the Swedish club league, one of the top competitive leagues for that country.
