Classroom

Madison Green has maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout college while majoring in biology. She will graduate in December 2019 after the indoor volleyball season has completed. As a junior in 2018, Green became the first student-athlete in Texas A&M-Corpus Christi history to earn CoSIDA Academic All-America Second Team honors. She was named first-team Southland All-Academic in 2018 after being a second-team performer as a sophomore in 2017. She has been named to the President’s Honor Roll all three years and has made the dean’s list for each semester she has been enrolled. Green spent part of her 2019 summer working in Clemson’s bio-engineering lab. She has taken the GRE and is currently applying to graduate schools to become a genetic counselor.

Character

During the 2018 season, Green took a two-match leave during the middle of the conference season to mourn the loss of her mother, who passed away from pancreatic cancer. She was told to take as much time off as she needed to spend time with her family back home. She would leave school during that time to be with her family. Before her passing, her mother would make trips down to Corpus Christi to watch her play. As a captain on a team that did not feature any seniors, Green returned to the team just two weeks later to finish her junior season.

Green appeared in every match during her freshman season in 2016, a year the Islanders went 16-0 in Southland play and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. While she was not a regular starter at that point, she quickly developed into a key starter the following year. As an opposite, she finished her sophomore year as a regular in the starting lineup and had one of the highest hitting percentages on the team, earning All-Southland honors. As a junior, Green was asked to change positions to setter due to depth. Knowing the team needed her presence in a different role, Green embraced the change and went on to earn her second-straight Southland honor, but at a different position.

Outside of athletics, Green enjoys cooking and spending time on the beach, including stand-up paddle boarding.

Community

Green has done numerous campus and community service projects in her four years. Each of the past four years, she has volunteered for the Islander move-in days. She is currently volunteering with New Century Hospice, working with patient care. Green has also spent time volunteering at animal shelters and has worked numerous church-related activities at home during the offseason.

Competition

Green is a two-time All-Southland Conference performer, earning first-team honors as a setter in 2018 and honorable mention accolades as an opposite in 2017. She was one of just two players in the conference to record a triple-double, a feat she accomplished three times during the year. She was named to four all-tournament teams during the non-conference slate of her junior season.

Green ranks No. 5 all time in Islander hitting percentage at .252 entering her senior season. She is also one of just eight players to record more than 1,000 assists for her career. Green has 578 career digs and 406 career kills entering her senior season.
