Comet Zone’s Student Athlete of the Month: February 2023, Madie Parrish

Andrew Little | Sports Editor

Sophomore Madie Parrish has stepped into a leading role for the Mason girl’s basketball team this year. Her 13.7 points per game lead the team and are fourth-most in the Greater Miami Conference. Her game-high 27 points against Lakota East in the regular season finale helped lead the Comets to another GMC Championship.

Parrish’s clutch scoring has been a major factor in the Comets’ success all season long. She scored a career-high 28 points in a 63-62 win at Princeton, including a game-winning field goal at the buzzer. She also scored the go-ahead basket to defeat Bolingbrook, a top Illinois team, at the Classic in the Country tournament in January.

She also leads the Comets in assists with 2.9 per game, sixth-best in the conference, and is second on the team with 2.6 steals per game. 

Parrish has also been one of the top three-point shooters in the GMC this season. Her 42 made triples are tied for second in the conference. Her threat behind the arc will be counted on in the state tournament, as the Comets prepare for another playoff run.
