RANDOLPH, NJ - It is not every day that an underclassman appears on the scoresheet of a soccer game, let alone leading the entire team in goals and points. This week however, sophomore Ashley Chipoletti earned TAP into Randolph’s “Athlete of the Week” title by scoring five goals and adding three assists in three games.

Chipoletti scored twice against Montville last Sunday and added two assists along the way to record a 4 point game. On Monday, she scored both goals in a 2-0 victory over Sparta, and she finished her week with a goal and an assist against Morris Hills on Sunday the 12th.

Chipoletti said it is an amazing feeling to contribute so much to the team although she is just a sophomore. “We all work very hard so it is very satisfying to see our efforts pay off,” Chipoletti said.

She credits her teammates to the success she has been having so far this season, explaining, “We are a family, a very close family that provides each other with guidance, support, and respect.”

“We constantly challenge each other to do better,” said Chipoletti.

Junior Captain Esther Wellman said it is really “Awesome” to have an underclassman contribute so much this year. “Ashley is very unique, she adds a lot up top,” Wellman said. “She does not seem like a young player.”

Chipoletti also appreciates the help she receives from her coaches on and off of the field. When asked about the coaching staff, she stated, “They inspire us by raising the bar every day so that we can continue to develop as players with the goal of someday reaching our full potential.”

Senior Katja Brackelmanns said how she is an example of how younger players can make an impact on a varsity team. “Ashley is there to compete and work hard, she is a great role model,” said Brackelmanns.

Chipoletti feels that soccer is a big, important part of her life. “Soccer is my passion and I can’t imagine life without it,” Chipoletti said. “Playing soccer has given me so many wonderful experiences that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

In three years, Chipoletti sees herself continuing to play soccer in college. “I have been playing soccer for as long as I remember, and I don’t want to stop any time soon.”
