Classroom

Madison Weekly is a two-time MVC Scholar-Athlete First Team selection and was named MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2016. She has been named to the MVC Honor Roll every season since stepping on campus in 2013. The Atkins, Iowa, native is a three-time MVC Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award winner and is pursuing her degree in accounting.

Character

Weekly has been a leader on and off the court since she took on a starting role as a true freshman in 2013-14. She suffered an injury midway through the season that year and returned to play off the bench, but continued to be a vocal leader from the sideline and persevere through her injury to finish second on the team in points. Since her freshman year, she has been the go-to point guard for the Panthers, leading by example and being a constant pillar of calmness for the younger players on the team. Weekly’s success in the classroom has provided her a teacher-like role on the team, helping her teammates in the classroom and on the court.

Community

Weekly has been an avid volunteer in the Cedar Valley since moving to Cedar Falls, Iowa, in the fall of 2013. She has worked closely with the Boys & Girls Club of Waterloo, volunteering as a mentor and a coach. She spends time at the New Aldaya Senior Living Community in Cedar Falls helping with activities and therapy. Weekly also volunteers with the Salvation Army, serving food over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
