Former Royals Elite Softball player, Ashley Roberts, signs with Clarke University! Ashley was apart of the first class of Royals when it began back in 2017 when she was a sophomore in high school. She made the decision to sign with Moraine Valley Community college upon graduating in 2020. With the help of one of her travel coaches, she was able to receive an offer from Coach Garland and Clarke University to continue her athletic and academic career.
Coach Garland got his first look at Ashley at a camp down in Alabama hosted by the Student Athletics Foundation, Black Girls Play Softball, and Miles College. It was there where he decided Ashley has what he's looking for in a player to help his program to be successful.
