Madison Hanson Plays in AHSAA’s North-South All-Star Softball Game; Second in Program History
Madison Hanson, rising PCA senior and Auburn University softball commit, was selected to play in the Alabama High School Athletic Association’s annual North-South All-Star softball game at Lagoon Park earlier this month.
As only the second player in program history named to a North-South All-Star team, Madison made her presence known almost immediately. She was the first player on the South team to score the first run in each game as the roster’s lead-off batter. She crossed the plate four times during the series. Madison also anchored the outfield on defense as the team’s centerfielder. This year was also the first time in the annual All-Star games that the South team has swept the North in the softball series.
Madison Hanson has been an instrumental part of the Lady Panthers softball team since her seventh-grade year. As a rising senior on a young team for the 2020 season, she will be a key leader in securing another championship run. Madison announced her plans to play for the Auburn Tigers earlier this spring – only the program’s second Division I commitment.
“Madison sis is a real go-getter,” said Randy Stough, PCA’s head softball coach. “She makes things happen offensively by just finding a way to get on base and score runs. Our team revolves around her energy. PCA’s coaching staff has high expectations for her leadership this season.”
