In the next few weeks, MileSplit MA will feature the top athletes to keep an eye on this indoor track and field season with our Athletes to Watch feature.
There will be several returning state champions this season and Madden is one of them. She is the defending titlist in the 300m dash where she ran an all-time best of 39.56. She came back the following week to add the New England crown to her resume. Madden won the season-opening Winter Festival and also broke the tape at the Division 5 Championships. She will have the target on her back this year and it won't be easy. The top five finishers from last year's state meet are all returning, including runner-up Ava Vasile of Medway, another sub 40-second runner.
