Northwestern three-sport standout Madison Layden capped her junior season with another all-state award.
The Indiana High School Tennis Coaches Association named its all-state selections and Layden made the second team. She posted a 19-2 record at No. 1 singles for the Tigers, who fashioned their fourth straight undefeated regular season and won their fourth straight Kokomo Sectional title. The Tigers finished as Kokomo Regional runners-up.
The all-state first team had 17 singles selections and 11 doubles selections and the second team had 16 singles and 10 doubles.
In the fall, Layden was a Class 3A second-team all-state pick in volleyball after helping the Tigers win their second straight Sectional 20 title. In the winter, she was a consensus all-state pick in basketball after helping the Tigers repeat as Class 3A state champions. She earned the most votes on the Associated Press all-state team, which is not divided by school size or grade level. She also was an Indiana Junior All-Star.
Layden is a Purdue basketball commit and a 2020 Miss Basketball candidate.
