Madison Clarke – Four year NCAA I starting pitcher and 2020 Canadian Olympic hopeful

Madison Clarke is a four year starting pitcher for Saint Joesph’s University (NCAA I) who has also represented Canada at the World Cup both on the Junior and Senior National Softball teams. Madison has a good shot at representing her country at the 2020 Summer Olympics as outlined in this recent article from June 2017.

Over the course of her three years at SJU, Madison has compiled a record of 33-22 in 64 starts, throwing 28 complete games including 7 shutouts. Her best era to-date came in her sophomore year in 2016 when she held opponents to a measly 2.26 runs per 9 innings.

She has received numerous recognitions thus far including being named to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team in 2015 and to the Atlantic 10 Preseason All-Conference Second Team in 2016.

In 2017 Madison also received 18 at-bats and managed to smack 2 doubles and her first college career home run while batting a very respectable .278. She is also comfortable playing the outfield for any team overseas seeking a two-way player.

Madison describes her pitching abilities as throwing a 60-64 mph fastball complimented by a drop, change, curve and rise.

Madison on her reasons for wanting to take her career overseas after college:

“I think it would be an amazing opportunity to play competitive softball and see the world.  Softball has already taken me out of my own country and allowed me to play in the United States for the past couple of years.  It would just be amazing to be able to travel more with it.”
