Personal Statement

Hello!  My name is Madeline Abbott.  I am 15 years old, and I am a freshman in high school this fall from Yankton, South Dakota.  I am 5'9" and 155 pounds.  I started playing hockey when I was 4 years old.  Through the years I have worked very hard to excel both on the ice and in the classroom.

Since I started playing hockey, I played on the boys teams the first 7 years.  I was on the A team throughout squirts and peewees.  In 2020 I played on the 2008 South Dakota Selects AAA boys team.  I was the only girl that made the team.  In 2020 I was named Defensive Player of the Year for the boys PeeWee A team.  Two years ago I played on the Yankton High School Girls Varsity team, where I was a starting defenseman and the leading scorer on the team.  I was given the ironman award that year. I also played for the girls South Dakota 14u National Team, as  a defenseman.  We won the bronze medal at nationals.  At last years tryouts, I was asked to move from the 14u to the 16u team.  I was the only 2008 player in the state asked to move up.  We again qualified for nationals and won the bronze medal.  I was a starting defenseman.  This past 2 seasons I have played for the Sioux Falls Lady Flyers girls varsity team to further my development. We had a great season.  I was one of the top defenseman as an 8th grader, and was a starter as a freshman.  

This year I made both the 16u and 19u teams for Team South Dakota.  We qualified for nationals at both levels, which will start in a few weeks.  I am very excited for this!

Next year I am moving to th Twin Cities to play hockey for Holy Family Catholic School in Victoria, MN.  It is going to be a big change, and a lot of work, but I know I am ready to take the next step in my development as a student athlete.

I think my strengths as a hockey player are my skating ability, conditioning, and my hockey sense.  I work hard in the gym, both during the season and in the off season.  This year I am committed to improving my shot.

I am also a good student.  I am a straight A student.  I am currently in advanced math and honors English, the only two honors classes available to me.  I am hoping to go into the medical field some day.  Because of this, I am committed to working hard in school.

I am very excited to start learning about the college recruiting process.  I look forward to all of my future communications with college coaches.  Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile!
