Wilmore, KY---Asbury College Athletics is pleased to announce the signing of women's soccer player Aly Crawford. Crawford (Christian Academy of Louisville) has played in goal, as a defender, and most recently as a striker. Crawford helped lead her club team, Louisville Soccer Alliance Element, to 1st place in the Derby Cup, as well as Bluegrass Invitational Finalists and District Runner-Up in 2008. In 2007 LSA Element was State Runner-Up, District Runner-Up, Louisville Cup Champions, Kick in the Bluegrass Champions, and Derby Cup Finalists.
