(WUSA9) — ASHBURN, Va. – Hundreds of students, parents and friends of Broad Run High School senior Madison Small gathered Tuesday night to mourn her sudden death from an as-yet unidentified illness.
Small's father Tim told WUSA9 he played catch with his daughter on Sunday, and the senior captain of her high school softball team was the picture of health. By Monday night she was suddenly ill and rushed to the hospital. Madison's coach, Ed Steele, said Small's father emailed him early Tuesday morning to say Madison would not make Tuesday night's game. A few hours later he would call to say his daughter was dead.
