Ashton participated in the North Carolina Olympic Development Program from 1998-2000. She has also competed in basketball and swimming. Ashton is a member of the National Honor Society. "Erin's versatility and speed will allow us to utilize her in many positions which will give our attack more options," said Coach Henson. Morris, a four-year letterwinner, helped lead Bowie High School to three county championships, two regional titles, and to the state semi-finals twice. She was named all-county first team three years and was team captain. Morris scored 51 goals and was credited with 70 assists in high school. In 2000, she was a member of the Maryland Olympic Development Program,and reached the 2000 State Cup Finals with the Freestate United club team.

She was a member of the academic honor roll, Maryland Minds in Motion and was part of the Student Government Association. "Meghan is a great addition to our program," said Coach Henson, "she is an aggressive player who reads the game extremely well, making her very versatile." Olsen's Catoctin High School team went to the 2001 state semi-finals. She was the second leading scorer in high school and was the leading scorer on her club team. In 2000, she was named to the All Mid-Maryland and All-Conference team. Olsen played club soccer for the Frederick United Express, which ended the 2000 season in the State Cup semi-finals. She stands out in other areas, as well. Olsen is also an all-area runner, winning state championships in the 1600 meters and twice in the 800 meters. She was a three-time MVP of her track team.
