After missing most of her freshman season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Madison Morgan has burst onto the varsity scene as a sophomore for the C.B. Aycock girls’ soccer team.
Morgan, who started playing soccer when she was four years old, is soft-spoken and lets her consistency, easy-to-spot skill, and game speak do the talking.
So far this season, Morgan has shined for the Golden Falcons this season. She has scored a team-high 15 goals, and Morgan scored an impressive six goals in a game against Southern Wayne earlier this season.
“It’s exciting. It makes me happy to know that I’m succeeding in my career as a soccer player,” Morgan said about scoring six goals.
It is rare for any student-athlete in any sport to become a varsity standout in one season, but that is precisely what Morgan has done.
She was unquestionably ready for the bright lights of varsity competition, and she knows her teammates’ guidance was instrumental in helping her make the transition to varsity sports.
“I’ve always known that I wanted to play soccer in high school and in college,” Morgan said. “I haven’t been on a team in a long time where I can talk to people like this, especially my coaches. They are all some of my favorite people to talk to.”
Morgan leads by example, and those around her follow because they see how much success she has had on the soccer pitch.
She is working hard to get better every season, but for now, she is excited to finally play her favorite sport while scoring a lot of goals.
“It’s been fun because I haven’t been able to do it for a long time, so it’s refreshing,” Morgan said.
