Coach Little on Ashley
“Ashley has the talent and potential to do well at UK. Right now, she is a typical freshman and is adjusting to the collegiate system. She definitely has the talent to make the bars and beam lineups.”

Outlook: Brown will be fighting to compete on the uneven bars and the balance beam. The Orlando, Fla., native will focus on developing consistency in her routines and understanding the collegiate system. With her skill and potential, she will help give the GymKats the depth needed to compete in the tough Southeastern Conference.

Pre-College: Was a Level 10 gymnast for more than three years before arriving at UK… Competed at the state and regional Level 10 competitions each year… Earned a spot at the Level 10 national meet in 1998… A graduate of Lyman High School.
