Stamford Lacrosse Star Madison Sweeney Commits to Connecticut

Stamford High School and CT Grizzlies star lacrosse player Madison Sweeney saw her years of hard work pay off when Division One colleges came calling her junior year. The attacker officially signed with UCONN on November 8 and joined fellow SHS athletic recruits for a schoolwide recognition celebration in February.

“At first, I thought, ‘no way’ did I want to stay so close to home. But when they called me, I felt an immediate connection. On a visit, I was super impressed. It felt like home to me. I got excited to rep Stamford and stay in Connecticut. I stopped looking at other schools and committed,” Sweeney says.

The future Husky is excited to play at the next level, and see where the sport she loves takes her. For now, though, the two-time team captain is looking forward to wrapping up her high school career with a strong senior season, hoping to kill it at both the FCIAC and State level. “I want to prove that we have the talent and skill to hang with the top programs.”
