Mt. Pleasant's Madison Kromer honored with CoGo's Unsung Hero Award

Mt. Pleasant senior student-athlete Madison Kromer was honored with the CoGo's High School Sports Unsung Hero Award Friday night at Vikings Stadium.

The High School Sports Unsung Hero Award, presented by CoGo's, recognizes local high school coaches and student-athletes who have dedicated themselves to sports and academics, but traditionally have not received the deserved attention.

A three-sport athlete, Mount Pleasant's Kromer is set to begin what should be an exciting senior year.

A member of the Vikings tennis, swimming and softball teams, Kromer's athletic accomplishments at Mt. Pleasant have been impressive.

"Madison is a good teammate because she is very encouraging," said Allison Homulka, tennis coach at Mt. Pleasant. "She is always willing to take time during practice to help a teammate, whether it is something simple that just requires a few words or something that requires more time and effort."

A WPIAL qualifier in the 100 backstroke last season, Kromer quickly developed into a leader in the pool as well as on the court.

"She is definitely a leader and good role model on our swim team and to the student body at Mt. Pleasant," said varsity swim coach Sandy Felice.

Off the field, however, Kromer has had just as big an impact.

A member of the National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society, Kromer maintains a 3.9 grade point average.

"She is a model student athlete here at MP," said Mt. Pleasant Principal John Campbell.

Her contributions go beyond athletics and academics, as Madison has volunteered at the Lions Club, Fireman's Fair, Make a Wish Benefit and Strikeout Breast Cancer Benefit.

One look at her on-field and off-field accomplishments and it's easy to understand why Madison Kromer is deserving of the CoGo's Unsung Hero Award.

"She practices hard and is 100 percent focused on the practice or game at hand," said Vikings softball coach Lauren Shaheen. "She is self-motivated, kind, smart, and intense in the best way possible. She is not only a hard worker but a wonderful kid with great character and that does not come around every day."

Kromer, who already attends the Central Westmorland Technology Center for Cosmetology, plans to earn her license and further her education in business or massage therapy with the goal of someday owning her own salon.

She is the daughter of Toni and Jay Kromer of Mt. Pleasant Township.
