Southlake Sports – Dragon Tales: Meet Madison Drescher
September 5th, 2014 | by Michelle
Take the pressures of school, family and life, then add three highly competitive sports teams – that’s the life of senior Madison Drescher. She not only plays varsity volleyball and basketball for Carroll ISD’s Lady Dragons, but also plays select volleyball.
“My whole life, people have been telling me I need to stick with one sport. I ignored them and made a plan to divide my time and energy into both,” Drescher said.
It’s safe to say that Drescher has found a balance between school, family and sports, and she has excelled in all. She made Academic All-District the past two years and was first team All-District last year in volleyball and basketball, among many other notable distinctions.
But Drescher admits that keeping a balanced life can be difficult. Luckily she has a great support system – her family.
“My family always pushes me to do my best, but they also know when I need a break from certain activities. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them,” Drescher said.
This talented student-athlete especially relies on her oldest brother, Justin Drescher, long snapper for the New Orleans Saints.
“Justin inspires me. He has shown me what perseverance and hard work can get you,” she said.
Though she may have perfected this balancing act in high school, Drescher won’t be following suit in college. She plans to focus on her true passion – volleyball. Upon graduation in the spring, Drescher will be playing volleyball at the University of Oklahoma.
