Alli Madison signs with Seawolves
ANCHORAGE (May 25) – Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball coach Tim Moser added another talented prep star to his roster Wednesday as he announced that Seattle native Alli Madison has signed a National Letter of Intent with the Seawolves.
Madison, a 5-8 guard, was a four-year letterwinner at Washington Class 3A power Kennedy Catholic High School, where she helped the Lancers to a 100-12 overall record and four straight WIAA State Tournament appearances. As a sophomore in 2008-09, she played for Kennedy’s undefeated, state-title squad.
“We feel that Alli is a diamond in the rough,” said Moser, whose Seawolves have been nationally ranked for four straight seasons. “She is very solid as she has the ability to score off the bounce or from the perimeter, and plays great defense. We love her toughness and the fact that she has been well coached. We are thrilled that Alli chose UAA and are enthusiastic about her future as a Seawolf.”
Last season, Madison averaged 16.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.6 steals and 1.9 assists per game in captaining the Lancers to a 25-4 overall record (14-0 in the Seamont League) and a 4th-place finish at the WIAA State Tournament. She was a First Team All-Seamont League selection, and played in both the WIBCA and Queens of the Hardwood senior all-star games this spring.
Madison is the sixth signee for the Seawolves’ 2011-12 recruiting class, joining JC transfers Bruna Deichmann (G, 5-9, Balneario-Camboriu, Brazil/Coll. of Eastern Utah) and Haley Holmstead (G, 5-8, American Fork, Utah/Salt Lake CC), and fellow incoming freshmen Jessica Madison (G, 5-8, Port Angeles, Wash.), Katie Richens (G, 5-8, Roosevelt, Utah/Union HS) and Gritt Ryder (G, 5-10, Rungsted Kyst, Denmark).
The Seawolves are coming off a 27-7 season in which they advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament 2nd Round and won the inaugural Great Northwest Athletic Tournament title.
