The St. John’s women’s soccer team has added another key piece ahead of the 2019 season, securing a commitment from Fairfield University transfer Alex Madden.
Currently a sophomore, Madden played in 17 of Fairfield’s 18 matches during the 2018 season, with seven starts. She had a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference-leading 12 goals and 25 points for the Stags this past season and was named to the All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference First Team.
In her rookie season playing for the Stags, Madden led the team with seven goals and 14 points to become the fifth MAAC Rookie of the Year in program history. Her seven goals ranked 19th nationally among first-year players.
Prior to enrolling at Fairfield, Madden signed to be a part of the Leicester City Women’s FC during the 2016-17 season where she played for all three levels, including First Team, Reserves and the Development Team.
The 5-foot-5 forward helped each level find success as she lifted the First Team to a third-place finish in the Northern Premier League. She also led the Reserves Team to a second-place showing in the Midland Reserve Premier League. The Development Team finished first in the East Midlands Division I South League.
Madden scored a combined 32 goals in 34 appearances as part of the three levels of Leicester City Women’s FC.
