Maddi established herself as a strong hitter, playing both from the Left and the Right Side on her Blaze teams. Joining one of Blaze's strongest teams in 2010, Maddi contributed to a stellar 5th place finish at the 16U National Championships in Sherbrooke Quebec.
The Fall of 2013 will see Maddi at the University of Waterloo, both for varsity volleyball and in the Recreational Therapy programme. Her plans include a future coaching career and "to play volleyball as long as I can".
Playing for Blaze gave me the opportunity to grow as a leader and team mate. I learned to reach for my goals no matter how much work it took and to push myself to be the best that I could be. I also learned that taking risks and working hard often lead to success. Over all, it was a great experience that I will never forget.
