Madeline Coleman

Senior Sports Reporter

Location icon United States

My name is Madeline Coleman, and I love writing. I'm from Raleigh, NC, but I am currently attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am a senior Business Journalism and Public Policy double major. I enjoy anything dealing with business, politics, the legal process, policies, pharmaceuticals, and sports.
I started writing for my high school paper during my sophomore year of high school. I was assistant editor and sports editor my junior year. During my senior year, I was Editor-in-Chief and Sports Editor. By the end of my high school career, I edited over a hundred articles, designed tens of pages for our school's newspaper/magazine, and wrote 20 pieces a year. I currently write for the sports desk at The Daily Tar Heel, and have been working there since Fall 2016 when I started at UNC. My previous positions at the DTH include sports reporter and senior investigative reporter. This past summer, I was the sports intern for the Charlotte Observer. Now, I'm a senior sports reporter for the DTH and a freelance reporter for the Charlotte Observer and Raleigh News and Observer.

Someday a pro, but first, a Tar Heel: Blumberg tackles tennis and life with his 'WE'

So why is the Greenwich, Conn., native in Chapel Hill, competing on Court 1 for singles and doubles, instead of going pro? Because he doesn't want others to think of him as just an elite athlete. There's more to him than that label. Heaven on Earth Blumberg can't help but smile as he rolls the windows down.

How Lindsey Lemke and the sister survivors overcame 30 years of abuse

"The tears, sadness, pain, guilt, frustrations, depression, anxiety, sleepless nights - it was all so worth it in that moment," Lemke said. "Being courageous and coming out with my story was so tough for many different reasons that many others didn't really have to worry about since I was a current MSU athlete at the time."

From penny pinching to championships: field hockey overcomes barriers

As women's teams like field hockey grab spectators' attention and rise to the top, they are still fighting to be recognized for their athletic ability rather than their gender. For Shelton, it all began in 1981 when she was 23 and had no desire to be a head coach.

Rivera: QB Heinicke's resilience, playmaking make him someone Panthers can't overlook

Taylor Heinicke couldn't help but chuckle. A few feet away, Christian McCaffrey was speaking to the media after a June minicamp practice, swallowed by the swarm of reporters. Heinicke tried to imagine himself in his teammate's shoes, but he shook his head. "Yeah, not my deal," Heinicke said, nodding in McCaffrey's direction.

Mental Health and Big Data: A Step in the Right Direction

The mental health community faces some unique challenges: lack of a central organization, inconsistent quality of information, and in some cases, denial of illness. As the medical profession has struggled for decades to think of effective ways to help their patients, data analytic companies have shown different ways that big data can be utilized for mental health treatment.
