Madi LoPinto was a buddy on the Cyclones and will be starting her Junior at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia this fall. She is studying Performing Arts with a minor in Acting For the Camera. She performs on stage at school and in student films throughout the year.
 
Madi loved the experiences she had in Buddy Baseball. She had two buddies, Robert and Marquel. She loved being able to get to know both of them and communicate with them in different ways. Madi, with the help of her mom was the team captain for the Buddy Baseball Relay For Life team.  Madi was so grateful of how kind the coaches, parents, buddies and their parents always were. She sends them all her love and team spirit and wishes she could be in two places at once!
