As we get ready for our unveiling next week of the 2019 Extra Inning Softball High School All-American Teams--which begins Monday, July 8 and will finish July 16-17 with our National Player of the Year and National Coach of the Year reveals—we continue our look at promising candidates across the country.
If you have a player to nominate for All-American consideration, email firstname.lastname@example.org but time is running out!
Today we learn more about a talented pitcher who not only finished her freshman campaign with a state title, she’s moved seamlessly into club play where she’s getting a lot of Power 5 college coaches following her progress this week in Sparkler Jr. Super Pool action (Loveland, Colorado).
And she was our Extra Inning Softball High School National Player of the Week for May 6, 2019 when the then-freshman threw a perfect game and went 7-for-9 at the plate as well.
Madison Inscoe has been on our radar for a while now—you may remember last December when she blogged about her tour around Florida checking out top college softball camps.

In May of 2019, Madison pitched her team to victory with a complete game 1-0 shutout win in the Virginia VISAA DIV II State Championships, a feat that hasn’t happened for her school Nansemond Suffolk Academy in 26 years.
What makes this more special is the fact that the victory was against Greenbrier Christian Academy (Chesapeake, Virginia), the five-time state championship team.
Also, Madison had just pitched a complete game semifinal shutout, a 2-0 win over Isle of Wight Academy, the day before with several Div. I college coaches in attendance.
