Hough was named 1st Team All Twin Lakes Conference, IGCA Northwest All-District, IBCA Region 1 All-Tournament Team.  She has also lettered in volleyball, track, and softball.  She was named 1st Team All-Conference catcher and holds the school records in both hits and home runs. She was named to the 1A Northwest All-District Team as well as All-State Honorable Mention. She qualified for the state track tournament as well. Hough is projected to be the 2020 valedictorian at GTRA with a 4.0 grade point average. She has earned Academic All-Conference honors in basketball, softball, and volleyball and is a member of National Honor Society. 

Madison is looking forward to her time at Iowa Lakes. When asked about why she chose to be a Laker, Hough commented, “I enjoy the atmosphere that the campus provides and how it feels like home. The staff was very welcoming. I chose the basketball program because of how much improvement they have made and the promise the team shows in the future. I really enjoyed talking with the coaches and liked what they had to say. I feel that this will be the perfect fit for me and I’m excited to get to know the team, coaches, and campus better.”

Madison won’t be the first Hough to wear a Laker uniform. Her father played on the men’s basketball team and her aunt played on the volleyball team.

Hough will be apart of big incoming class. The Lakers will graduate 9 players this year. Coach Martin is looking for her to have a big impact on the team, ”Madison is going to bring a lot of skills to our program having played point guard and shooting guard. She can really handle the ball and shoot it. I love how competitive she is and I think she will bring that energy and intensity to our team.”
