Tri-County Thunder’s Maddy Adams was confident in her decision to join the Lancers this coming fall earlier in November 2017. She committed to the University of Windsor following a great weekend with the team.

Adams wasn’t always a basketball player. It wasn’t until her first year of high school that she took basketball more seriously. Before that, she had been playing competitive hockey for ten years. It was after enjoying playing the sport in Gr. 8 that she contacted Allan Bush who invited her out to summer practices to later join the team in the fall.

As she sees it, the University of Windsor offers a great balance of strong academics, winning coaches, and welcoming future teammates. Adams is a competitive spirit and knows she can contribute to a winning atmosphere in Windsor and looks forward to playing under the inspirational leadership of head coach, Chantal Vallée.

When she is not in the gym, Adams will be studying sociology.

As she reflects on the regular season, she can identify the lengths in which the Tri-County Thunder JUEL team has grown. Regardless of the new faces at the beginning of the year, the team bonded well and that has certainly contributed to the winning record.

Adams is thankful for many who have supported her on this journey. Those include her parents and family, friends at school, high school coach, Matt McIntyre, Tri-County’s head coach, Allan Bush, and her Tri-County assistant coach, Alex Kawinska.
