Chloe started off playing soccer when she was 4, never knowing that she can get this far in soccer. Now she holds one of McMahon’s most impressive records. On Tuesday October 2nd, 2018, McMahon history was made on Trinity Catholic’s Gaglio Field when senior Chloe Ortolano set McMahon’s girls soccer all time scoring record, passing Kiki Koroshetz who's held the record of 37 goals for 14 years.
“It was a great accomplishment. Since I was young I’ve been working very had to where I am now” Ortolano said. She went on to say her first goal of her high school career was her 2nd game as a freshman.
Ortolano also played lacrosse and track. Why did she pick soccer as her main sport though? Ortolano explained that it's because “my dad was a coach for soccer so it gave me a better connection to the sport.”
Ortolano plays CAM, which is a midfield player who is positioned in an attacking midfield position. This position is for people who have good passing abilities, vision, & the ability to make long range shots, while still also possessing solid dribbling skills. Ortolano also plays CDM, which is a more defensive midfielder.
Last year, Ortolano verbally committed to Providence College, ensuring that she will continue the game she has played her whole life for another four years. This year Ortolano has been a main leader for the McMahon girls soccer team as a captain with eight goals to her name. McMahon has already claimed a spot in the state tournament and with a tie Saturday afternoon against Fairfield Ward, clinched their spot in the FCIAC tournament.
