Player of the Year
Madison St. Rose, Sr., St. John Vianney
What more can you say about the 5’10 guard who will leave as one of the most decorated players in Shore Conference history? The Princeton University star earlier this month was named Gatorade New Jersey Player of the Year and she’ll need more space for more awards to follow. Her numbers speak for themselves as she led the Lady Lancers in scoring (22 ppg) and rebounding (5.1 ppg) while finishing second in assists and steals.
What makes St. Rose so special is her ability to improve her teammates, which she does almost effortlessly every game. She doesn’t run but rather glides across the court and is so smooth you almost take her game for granted.
Her four-year career at SJV saw her score 1,747 points and grab 458 rebounds – and remember, she lost at least half of her junior year to a pandemic-shortened season and missed out. other opportunities when post-season tournaments were canceled. The Lady Lancers went 97-6 with her on the court, which included two official Shore Conference tournament titles, two non-public NJSIAA A championships and the last Tournament of Champions crown last week. In his last high school game, St. Rose scored 21 points and added 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals in a 20-point win over Rutgers Prep.
Now she’s taking her game and 4+ GPA to Princeton and you can expect her to make an impact on and off the court.
