Congratulations to Oak Park and River Forest soccer player Ashley Gerin, the Midtown Athletic Club Athlete of the Week.

The promising freshman forward made her varsity debut at Oak Park Stadium in style, scoring three goals in the Huskies’ 7-1 win over Riverside-Brookfield.

“Ashley is young but very talented,” OPRF coach Ignacio Ponce said. “She still needs time to grow, but Ashley already has impacted the game.”

Erin Schrobilgen, Brigid Freed, Julia Weiss and Tess Trinka added a goal apiece for the Huskies, who are 1-1-1.

The Midtown Athletic Club Athlete Feature, The Midtown Athletic Club Athlete of the Week and weekly sports calendar/scoreboard are sponsored by Midtown Athletic Club in Oak Park.
