Salgado carries Marshalltown to victory

OTTUMWA — Ashley Salgado, a talented three-sport athlete during her time at Ottumwa High School, is already making her mark at Marshalltown Community College, where she plays volleyball and basketball.

Salgado finished a promising freshman volleyball season with an average of about six digs per set — the sixth-highest average in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference. She also had a breakout game on the basketball court Wednesday. Her game-high 21 points propelled the Tigers to a 62-52 victory over North Central Missouri College. Salgado, who acts as the Tigers floor general at point guard, scored 14 of her 21 points in the second half and spearheaded her team’s 10-0 run at the end of the game. The victory improved the Tigers record to 2-2. Unfortunately, Marshalltown wasn’t able to sustain that momentum and fell to the South Australian Sports Institute 67-48 Saturday.

Salgado is coached by former Iowa State standout Alison Lacey. Lacey was a four-year starter and all-Big 12 point guard for the Cylcones — she also was a member of the squad that qualified for the Elight Eight in 2009. Lacey went on to play for the Seattle Storm, which captured the WNBA championship her rookie season. Salgado has an excellent opportunity to learn from someone who knows what it takes to excel at the highest level.  

Salgado’s sports career at Ottumwa culminated with an exceptional senior season  in all three sports she was involved in last school year. Her point guard play helped steer Ottumwa to a 15-8 record and a share of the CIML Metro Conference title. Her steller passing skills — she led the state with seven assists per game — earned her a spot on the all-CIML Metro Conference second team.

do’s serve and dig skills played a key role in the success the Bulldog volleyball team enjoyed. Her solid play got her named to the all-CIML Metro Conference first team. In addition, she  held the school record in digs before it was snapped by Olivia Roark this season.

On the tennis court, Salgado and her doubles partner Kelsey Granneman won their Class 2A regional and finished eighth at state. It marked the second trip to state in Salgado’s career.
