A New York woman and Tufts University student died while attending a charity hot dog contest on Sunday.
Madie Nicpon, who was known for her high scores in both sporting and academia, reportedly choked to death while participating in the hot dog-eating contest.
According to Lohud, Tufts described Nicpon as being in an accident Saturday afternoon at a “private, rental property” in the town of Somerville.
While Nipcon did not have a chance to truly shine with her new lacrosse team at Tufts, she had an incredible high school sporting record at Suffern High School and was appreciated by the college team.
“She truly valued her relationships with her teammates and coaches,” one team member said. “Her reach was far beyond our team — she was a true connector on campus and touched every single person she met.”
Others remember her energy in high school, and the constant drive she had to win.
“She was kind and caring (and) lit up every room and field she stepped on,” Kimberly Mahecha wrote. “She easily became everyone’s friend and made an impact on everyone she met. She was the biggest cheerleader for all of her teammates and the biggest hype man during good and bad games.”
Nicpon’s dream job, according to her Tufts roster bio, was to be a contestant on “Love Island UK.”
