Taking on the field, court, and diamond, Maddie Kiley has made Hudson High School history as being the first eighth grader to play three varsity sports.

Kiley has played and worked hard for this all her life. She started tee-ball and basketball in kindergarten as Co-Ed. Before high school, she played many other sports including gymnastics, soccer, track and she excelled in karate earning her brown belt.

Although Kiley made the varsity team for softball right away, she had to work hard on Jv for a few practices and games to make varsity basketball and field hockey. Playing just one game on jv field hockey and two games on jv basketball to prove herself that she was able to play at the varsity level.

Playing on teams outside of the school like Hudson Demolition for softball and CMF for basketball has definitely made Kylie more experienced and helped her get more skill.

“Playing on club and travel teams helped me become eligible to be on varsity, skill wise,” Kiley explained.

Being one of the youngest players on a highly competitive team has pushed Kiley to better her skill during practices and games, having a eye on the team’s success.

“I feel that I have been challenged every single game and practice especially in practice because of all the older players and even people close to my age, they push me to get better”

Not only has playing on varsity affected her game by making her push herself to improve, she has also gained more confidence as a player, with the reassurance of her hard work over time proving to have helped.

“[Making varsity] has affected me positively because i have got a lot of good self esteem that my work is paying off” Kiley said when reflecting on what her years of hard work has lead to.

Not only has competing on three varsity sports as an eighth graders affected how she plays, Kiley also feels it affects other parts of her life and has helped her grow as a person.

“I think in all the teams i’ve been on i’ve learned how to like create friendships and its taught me a lot of social skills,” Kiley explained, “Not a lot of people on the team are close to my age group and that was kinda scary at first but I just had to learn to be friends with them.”
