Current Trojan and future Michigan Wolverine junior Madison Cuchran recently shared a life-changing decision with her peers. The libero has committed to continue her volleyball career in the future at the University of Michigan. She’s excited about the new challenge and a higher level of play. 

“It’s just so amazing to see how good these girls are and have the opportunity to play with the best people,” Cuchran said. 

Cuchran grew up surrounded by sports and competition. She is inspired by her sister, an infielder on Northwestern University’s softball team. 

“My family’s just a big sports family, and that’s a huge aspect,” Cuchran said.

She’s also excited about her future at the University beyond volleyball. 

“The coaches, the program there…you just get blown away by the campus,” Cuchran said.
