Former Murray State women’s soccer standout Caroline Ashton recently signed a professional contract with newly-established Racing Power FC based in Portugal that competes in the Campeonato Nacional III Divisao – the third tier of Portuguese women’s soccer.
“I’m really happy for Caroline. Her senior season didn’t end the way she wanted, but she worked hard to get back to her best and reach her goals. She will do great things in her pro career, and I can’t wait to follow along,” said MSU head coach Matt Lodge.
Ashton appeared in 70 matches while logging 3,994 minutes over her four-year career at Murray State from 2015-18 that featured four OVC titles and three NCAA Tournament appearances. The Fishers, Indiana native tallied three goals and three assists in a Racer uniform and was also named to the 2017 OVC All-Tournament Team.
She is the second former Racer to head to Portugal to pursue a professional career in recent weeks after Karsyn Hasch signed with Boavista on January 8th.
