As fall begins to push its way through Emory & Henry College, it’s just a sign that the 2017 soccer season is finally here for the Emory & Henry Wasps. The Wasps are anxious to turn things, as they hope to make the conference tournament. The Wasps are led this year by senior, captain Madison Vaughn.
Vaughn is a three year starter from Gate City, VA. She has played in 52 career games for the Wasps, starting in 42. When asked about how big of a change she has seen personally about the women’s soccer team, Vaughn replied, “I’ve seen a definite big change in the team and I think we can make it all the way, no problem.”
There are a couple of new positive changes to the Wasps soccer team this year. When asked on the expectations this season, Vaughn stated, “Our expectations are definitely higher this year. We have a brand new coach and many talented freshmen.”
Vaughn isn’t just busy on the field, she’s also busy in the classroom. Vaughn is majoring in Interdisciplinary History with a Special Education endorsement.
Vaughn is the Greek Council Vice President, a sister in the Alpha Beta Chi social sorority, and is a member of Blue Key.
After graduation, Vaughn is planning to marry her fiance Chandler Copeland and plans on moving to Virginia Beach, Virginia to teach at a elementary or middle school.
