According to a recent Facebook post by Lake Land College graduate, Madison Boone (Shelbyville, IL; Shelbyville High School), Boone has verbally committed to continue her collegiate student-athletic career at Western Illinois University in Macomb, IL.

WIU is a NCAA Division I member with an enrollment of approximately 19,000.

The WIU Fighting Leathernecks play in the Summit League, which will tally ten member schools starting in the 2018 season.

Boone played softball at the NJCAA Division I level for the Lady Lakers of Lake Land College for two seasons under the guidance of head softball coach, Nic Nelson.

Heading west is nothing new to Boone, who helped the Lady Lakers qualify and compete in the NJCAA Softball Division I National Finals at Canyons Complex in St. George, UT, in both her seasons at Lake Land, where her main contributions came at the plate and playing the hot corner.
