If all goes according to plan, Ashley will finally be linked to her older sister, Leslie, in the same breath - as individual state champions.
Leslie was a state champion at Randallstown High as a junior in 1998.
"She still reminds me of it every day," said Ashley, who will attend Long Island University on a full tennis scholarship just like her sister.
Ashley Harvey recently became a three-time Baltimore County champion and two-time regional champ.
Since losing in the first round freshman year, she has progressed one step further each year in the state tournament.
In 2003, she fell in the second round and last year she lost in the third round.
"This year is my year to win," Harvey said.
Harvey is 12-0 in matches this season and has only lost two games.
"I have gotten really bored," she admitted.
In county competition through four years, she is 41-0, but she has become even more dominant this season thanks to improvement in her volleys and serve.
"Ashley used to be shy at the net. Now, she's a lot more confident," Coach Jeff McDaniel said.
"It was a fear of getting hit by the ball," Harvey said.
Now, it's the opponents who step on the court who fear her every shot.
One tennis player who doesn't fear anyone is Catonsville junior Matt McDaniel, the coach's son.
McDaniel, the boys number one county and regional champion, will also be playing in the state tournament, beginning Friday, May 27 at 9 a.m.
Harvey and McDaniel think they have hit thousands and thousands of balls with each other and have made each other stronger.
"I haven't lost when she has warmed me up," said McDaniel, 15-0 this season.
McDaniel was second in the county last year and first in the region.
This year, his stiffest competition was Pikesville's Todd Jacobson, who he beat 7-6, 6-4 in the county tournament and followed up with a 6-2, 6-4 sweep of Jacobson in regionals.
Since last year, McDaniel has grown four inches to 6-feet-1, and got stronger through weight training.
"He completely overpowers people," said Jeff McDaniel.
The last two years at the state meet McDaniel has lost to the eventual state champion.
He also spent time training under high-level Coach Joe Mattingly.
"He has helped me tune up my game a lot," said McDaniel, whose strength is his baseline play and serves.
Although Harvey will dedicate herself to tennis, she doesn't see the pro tour in her future.
"As much as I love tennis, I'm not that good to go on the pro tour," she said. "I could see myself being an occupational therapist. I like making people feel better."
She will surely feel better about talking to her sister if she is crowned state champion.
Catonsville's team finished 9-1 in the division, but they lost the title to 9-1 Towson by virtue of Towson's 5-4 victory over them.
The Comets, who won the division last season, were second in the county tournament to Pikesville, winners of 38 of the past 40 county titles.
Catonsville's number two girls doubles team of junior Casey Nolan and senior Cathryn Fischer took second in the county tournament.
The mixed doubles team of sophomores Matt Wooten and Rebecca Puls was third along with the boys doubles team of Ross Carpenter and Dan Hartke.
