Ever since her high school years, Ashley Labrador, has maintained a relationship with sports.
In High School, Labrador was a three-sport varsity athlete and still stays active in her free time. Not only has she been an amazing athletic trainer, but she is also a friend to many of the athletes here at McMahon.
“I like how she plays around with her athletes and shes easy to talk to,” said Caitlyn Hocker (‘20), a junior that has found herself in Labradors’ room very often due to a recent injury.
Labrador has made her room a fun environment for athletes and students.
“It's a comforting space where you always feel welcome,” Lila Young (‘21) said.
Labrador has worked at Brien McMahon for five years and has had quite the impact on the student athletes that are constantly in and out of her room.
She's not only a trainer but she's also a motivator.
Labrador uses her extensive knowledge of how to stay in shape, and how to prevent injuries, to challenge the athletes she works with every day.
Weather its taking a nap, getting wrapped before a game, or simply filling your water bottle, Labrador has made herself and her room a friend to the students at Brien McMahon High School.
