Madison Peacher – Shepherd University (Lacrosse)


Major: Biology/Pre-Med


Reasons for choosing Shepherd:  “I was planning on playing soccer, but in the last year, I found a passion for lacrosse. I always had a passion for it, but I loved it. It really wasn’t planned, but it just came about. The Shepherd coach emailed me, and we set up a visit, and I fell in love with the school.”


What was the progression that led you to competing in lacrosse at the collegiate level?  “I played soccer since I was three, and that’s always been my main sport and lacrosse was on the side, but after last season, I was like ‘I could play this in college, I could see myself doing this.’ I kind of outgrew soccer a little bit. I found out I liked lacrosse more.”


Coach Tracy Hibsman says: “Madison is not only a dedicated lacrosse player, she’s also a soccer player. She has played soccer since she was three and plays goalie for the girls’ team, and on top of that, she also is the kicker for the football team as well. She’s been doing that since her junior year. Madison has many talents, but when it came down to it, she felt very passionate about lacrosse, and that’s where she decided to continue her athletic dreams. Madison plays attack, which is very well suited for her. She likes to have the ball in her stick and go to goal. That’s her main job on the field, and that’s what she likes to do. Without her drive to put the ball in the back of the net, we wouldn’t have had the record we had. Madison is a lefty, so that’s a pretty unique skill to have in the game of lacrosse. It makes her more of a threat as an attacker. At the start of her junior season, Madison was what I call a one-dimensional player. She put her head down and went to goal, and she was good at it, but because she’s such a coachable player, we coached her to get the ball in her stick, look up, have more field awareness, and that’s what she did. She was able to have more assists and became more of a team player and gave other girls get the opportunity to score like she can. She also has grown a lot in mental toughness. We’re going to miss Madison and all the energy and positivity she brought to the team. Congratulations and best wishes at Shepherd University.”
