PCA’s Madison Hanson and McKenzie Montgomery Sign Softball Scholarships
Prattville Christian Academy is proud to announce another class of Lady Panthers to sign athletic scholarships to play softball at the collegiate level. Madison Hanson and McKenzie Montgomery were an instrumental piece of the program’s state championship win in 2018. During ceremonies held this week, Madison signed with Shelton State Community College and McKenzie signed with Louisiana College.
Madison Hanson has been a major contributor to PCA’s program since her seventh-grade year. She has been the Lady Panthers’ offensive spark plug since 2016. As the leadoff batter, Madison sets the tone with her ability to get on and steal bases. Defensively, she anchors the team as the centerfielder making critical catches. Madison received All-State honors in 2018.

“Madison is determined to be the best player on the field,” said Randy Stough, head softball coach. “She always sets big goals and has high ambitions. I have no doubt she will be successful at Shelton State.”
McKenzie Montgomery transferred to PCA during her eighth-grade year. Since entering the program the following year, she has been a steady defensive player at second base. Offensively, McKenzie has steadily improved every year and has made some timely hits in the program’s multiple state championship runs. She was named an All-State Honorable Mention in 2018.
