CANFIELD OH- Last season as a freshman Madi Dado made her name known to the South Range softball fans, and the softball community. Not only did Dado become an integral part of the Raiders lineup last season, but she made two big game saving catches in their tournament run to the state championship.
Now coming into her sophomore season, Dado’s name is firmly on everyone’s radar. She loves the attention. She knows that while it brings pressure, it also validates the hard work she has put into her game. The extra attention from opposing scouting reports hasn’t slowed Dado down one bit either. She is still one of the top hitters in the district. Pitchers will find it a tall task to keep Dado off the base paths. Spending most of the season at the top of the order, you can easily see why the Raiders offense runs through her.
Madi is currently batting .484 on the season. That puts her second on the team. Her on base percentage breaks the .500 mark sitting at .515. Dado leads the team in hits with 44. Dado also leads the team in stolen bases with 18. Madi takes a lot of pride in patrolling center field for the Raiders this season. She has played nearly perfect out there. She has made just one error all season. She leads the Raiders outfield in putouts.
Dado took the time to come on to YSN’s Running Point this week to talk about her campaign and the upcoming regional semifinal against Tuslaw. She talks with Anthony Hartwig, and Ty Bartell about her success this season, keeping up the Raiders prestige as a program, and much more.
