Madison Pogue enters her second season as the head volleyball coach at Catawba Valley Community College.
During her first season as coach, Pogue led the Red Hawks to a 21-5 overall record, including 10-0 mark in Region 10 play. CVCC also won its 13th Region 10 title and clinched a berth at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II national championship for a third-straight season. At the national tournament, the Red Hawks won their first match of the event for only the second time in school history.
Pogue, who helped CVCC extend its winning stream in Region matches to 195 in a row in Division I, II and III play and 156 in a row in conference matches, was named the Southeast District A Coach of the Year.
She was hired on March 1, 2020 to lead her alma mater as Catawba Valley Community College's fifth volleyball coach all time.
One of the most prolific setters in Red Hawk volleyball history, Pogue helped lead CVCC to a 73-9 record during her two seasons on the court in 2013 and 2014, including a perfect 34-0 record in conference play and a national tournament appearance in 2013.
Pogue ranked sixth in the nation in service aces during both her freshman and sophomore seasons with the Red Hawks, and she ranked 12th in nation in aces per set during her final season at CVCC en route to All-Region 10 first team honors.
She finished her Red Hawk career ranked second all time in career assists (2,243), assists per set (8.561) and aces (179), and she also ranks third first most aces in a single season (83).
Pogue went on to finish her collegiate career at North Greenville University where she compiled 2,276 assists, 517 digs, 127 kills and 74 aces in 63 matches (222 sets) played for the Crusaders.
She set North Greenville's single-season record for assists with 1,201 in 2015, and she also broke the school's single match assist record (53 against Georgia College on Sept. 11, 2015) before going on to earn second team all-conference accolades.
Following her athletic career, Pogue continued to give back to the sport she loves, serving as a graduate assistant coach for the Crusaders for two seasons.
After her time playing and coaching at North Greenville, Pogue remained active in volleyball, serving as the Director of Operations for the FCA Foothills Volleyball Club in Hickory — a program she started with mentor and former Red Hawk head coach Shannon Hudson.
