This week’s White County High School Scholar Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Gary Maxwell Insurance, is Madison Gardenhire.
The senior is a post player for the Warriorette basketball team and also plays on the school’s softball team. WCHS basketball coach, Michael Dodgen, nominated her for the honor.
Dodgen commented, “Madison has had a great season for us so far this year. She has worked really hard to get herself ready to play. She works really hard on and off the floor to be the best player and student she can be.”
Jimmy Clark, from Gary Maxwell Insurance, noted, “Madison talked about being nervous at the end of the Cookeville game, but it didn’t show. She remained calm and poised, knocked down some big shots, and pulled down the rebound that sealed the game. She is definitely a deserving Scholar Athlete.”
