Madison Nelson

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Madison Nelson with the Washington Stingrays Swim Team. Madion completed her final year of competitive swimming with the Stingrays this summer. Madison is the daughter of Brad and Stacey Nelson. She is a 2014 graduate of St. Francis Borgia. Madison is going to MIZZOU this fall where she is enrolled in the School of Arts and Science. Madison started swimming competitively for the Washington Swim Team when she was 8. She swam every summer for the team until she was 18. Her last 2 years with the team she also worked as a Junior Coach. Along with summer swim, she swam 2 years for the YMCA Fray Swim team which competes from September until March. Last year she was part of the first girls swim team at St. Francis Borgia. Madison is the kind of athlete every coach wishes they had on their team! She is a hard worker who is willing to do what is asked of her for the good of the team. She is just as excited about other's successes as she is about her own. Her teammates look up to her as a leader and she carries herself with confidence. Madison can always be counted on as a solid performer and a person to get the job done.

Early Thursday morning, I received news that vandals had broken in to St. Francis Borgia Grade School in Washington, causing extensive damage to several classrooms and offices. School was closed for the day as the Washington Police Department went about their business of securing what had changed from a school community to a crime scene overnight.
