Phoebe Madsen Earns CMS Women's Scholar-Athlete of the Year Honor from SCIAC

CLAREMONT, Calif. - Senior volleyball player Phoebe Madsen was one of 18 student-athletes to earn SCIAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year accolades from the conference, which awards the honor to one male and one female student-athlete from each of its nine member institutions each year.

Madsen capped off a standout career for the volleyball team this fall, earning first-team All-America honors for the second year in a row. As a sophomore in 2017, she helped the Athenas to the first national championship in program history, assisting on match point in the title match against Wittenberg. 

During the national championship season, Madsen split time at setter with her older sister Clara, and then emerged as a six-rotation player who split time between the setter and hitter positions as a junior and senior. She was twice named the SCIAC Player of the Year, and added the SCIAC Tournament Most Outstanding Player honor in 2018 while leading CMS to its second of three straight league titles. In the classroom, Madsen carried a 3.90 GPA as an economics and finance major at Claremont McKenna through the fall semester, and was a three-time Academic All-SCIAC selection. 

Madsen was joined on the SCIAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year list from CMS by Miles President of the men's basketball team.
