“Madison is a player that just gets better each time she takes the floor, and also makes those players around her better also,” St. Mary’s coach Bruce Woitas said. “It has been a lot of fun to watch her play the game of basketball, she has a great passion for the game and has put the time into the game and it’s good to see her rewarded for all the work she has put into the game.”
