2018-19 SCOTT McKENZIE SPORTSWOMAN OF THE YEAR
Molly Madore #17 (Women’s Soccer)
Sr. / 5-2 / Defender/Forward
Hometown: Higganum, Conn.
High School: Haddam-Killingworth HS
Major: Criminal Justice
Inside the numbers: Madore had another outstanding season in the fall of 2018 to cap a stellar four-year career at Southern Vermont. She tallied six goals and an assist in her senior campaign with two of her strikes being game winners. The captain was named to the All-NECC First Team—becoming the first player in program history to garner the accolade four-straight years. The Mountaineer also helped SVC go to the NECC playoffs in all four seasons of her collegiate tenure. For her career, Madore notched 40 goals and 13 assists through 71 games played; she will go down as Southern Vermont’s all-time goals leader—as well as the school’s career points leader with 28 more than the second listing on the record chart.
What Coach Zauzig is saying: "First, I’d like to congratulate everyone nominated for this honor as each young woman would have represented the award with class. Molly had a fantastic year for us as a center back… scoring timely goals and—most importantly—being a great leader. What people outside the team don't see is her work rate, toughness, and commitment to the team each and every day. More than anything, this award caps a phenomenal career by one of the most influential players in program history. Our coaching staff, the team, and our program were lucky to have her at SVC. We would like to congratulate her again for this outstanding achievement.”
