Seniors Ingrid Boyum, Paige Humphrey, and Madison White decided on Navy, William and Mary, and Brown respectively to continue their academic and athletic endeavors next year. Before the Thanksgiving break, friends, family, and coaches gathered for a college commitment ceremony to celebrate the hard work of these Madeira girls and their decisions to play at the next level.

Lacrosse goalie and team co-captain, Ingrid Boyum has honorably chosen to attend the United States Naval Academy. Last year, Ingrid had a total of 201 saves in 20 games and was consistently ranked in the top ten for save percentages by The Washington Post. As a sophomore she made the D.C. Metro III team and then the D.C. Metro II team as a junior. Ingrid also participated in varsity soccer and swimming at Madeira.

Paige Humphrey has accepted an athletic scholarship from William and Mary to join the Tribe women’s volleyball team. A four-year member of Madeira’s varsity team, the outside hitter and middle back has accumulated 871 kills, 649 blocks, and 137 aces during her high school career, and has a hitting percentage of 326. In 75 sets played this past season, Paige was the statistical leader for the Snails with 343 kills, 682 attack attempts, 238 digs, and 451 service receptions, helping them earn their sixth-place ranking in the state of Virginia. Paige was named to First Team All-State, Div. I and named Under Armour Honorable Mention All-American. Paige also plays for VA Elite, a club volleyball team who uses the Madeira athletic facilities. 

As a freshman, Madison White joined the Madeira junior varsity lacrosse team with little background in the sport, she is now looking forward to playing for Brown University in the fall of 2014. The lacrosse midfielder and team co-captain, has been a mainstay for the Snails. In the 2013 season she started 18 of 20 games, accumulating 46 ground balls, 39 draw controls, 17 goals, and 1 assist. Madison earned All-ISL league honors for her season in 2013. She also played varsity soccer.

“These young women are exceptional students and athletes,” said Athletic Director Katie Lamade. “Their talents have elevated our teams and our school community; we know they will do the same next year in college.”
