Ashley High School Women’s Soccer Team
Welcomes Special Guest Player for Senior Night May 5th
On May 5, 2015, Nina Pinkley, an Ashley High School Specially
Designed Academics (SDA) student with autism, will play in her
first official soccer game during Senior Night. The Ashley
women’s soccer team will compete against Laney High School at
the Ashley stadium beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Nina has been the women’s soccer manager at Ashley for the past
two years and has developed friendships with team members,
earning their acceptance and respect as their dedicated team
manager. As a senior, Nina will be promoted to the TPYA
(Transition Program for Young Adults) next year, where she will
gain independence and job skills after she graduates from Ashley
“Nina is such an athlete,” said Coach Claire Quick. “We will
miss having her as our team manager, but we are glad to get to
send her off in such an exciting way. Her positive attitude and
encouragement will surely be missed.”
The Ashley Exceptional Children’s Buddy Club will be hosting a
pre-game pizza party to celebrate Nina, her chance to
participate in an official game and her time at Ashley.
