PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 13, 2012) – Chi Alpha Sigma, a nonprofit organization established to recognize college student-athletes who earn a varsity letter while maintaining a 3.4 or higher cumulative GPA through their junior and senior seasons, inducted two Rutgers softball players into the National College Athlete Honor Society Saturday, Oct. 13.
Recent RU graduate Noelle Sisco (Towaco, N.J.) and current senior Kaci Madden (Saratoga, N.Y.) were two of 30 Scarlet Knights inducted in a ceremony during halftime of the Rutgers-Syracuse football game. The softball team was one of 15 RU squads with at least one student-athlete recognized.
In her time at Rutgers, Sisco was both a starter and relief pitcher since arriving to Piscataway in 2009. In nearly 200 career innings pitched, the Towaco, N.J., native compiled six complete games, a 4.28 ERA and 109 strikeouts. Sisco earned a spot on the BIG EAST Academic All-Star squad, consistently leading the program’s pitching staff by example on and off the field.
Madden, a biomedical engineering major, is a catcher on Rutgers’ squad and has played in 107 career games behind the plate. In 2011, she recorded a career and season high four RBIs against Seton Hall. Beyond the field, Madden is a stellar scholar and was named to the BIG EAST Academic All-Star squad and was recognized as a NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete.
Chi Alpha Sigma encourages and rewards high academic scholarship of college athletes at four-year accredited colleges and universities. The organization recognizes outstanding academic achievement by intercollegiate varsity letterwinners.
