Ashleigh Hilligas


Athletic Trainer

Ashleigh graduated with her B.S. in Athletic Training from Fort Hays State University in May 2015.  While at Fort Hays, she worked with the University’s football, men’s basketball, women’s soccer and baseball teams as well as the local high school. Following graduation, she worked full time in the orthopedic clinic at Hays Medical Center. During her time there, she had the opportunity to travel with an orthopedic surgeon to rural outreach clinics where care was not otherwise available to residents. 


She went on to work as the head athletic trainer at Thomas More Prep Marian High School for two years before taking over as head athletic trainer at Hays High School for two years. During this time, she also co-led the Athletic Edge, a strength, condition and speed program for local middle school and high school athletes. 


Ashleigh is originally from Aurora, where she attended Cherokee Trail High School. Upon returning to Colorado, Ashleigh worked as the assistant athletic trainer at Mountain Vista High School in 2020-2021. At the conclusion of the 2021 school year, Ashleigh was asked to take over as the head athletic trainer at Legend High School where she, along with her assistant, created a welcoming environment for the student athletes and built a strong athletic training student aid program. These students were able to learn and apply a variety of athletic training and medical skills.  


In her spare time, Ashleigh enjoys hiking, kayaking and traveling with her son, Raylan, and attend Rockies games whenever possible.
