Madison Trpcic was noticed by Bryant University in September when she competed in a tournament in New York. In April, Trpcic visited the campus and the team and it was clear that Smithfield, Rhode Island would be her home for the next four years.
Trpcic was drawn to the energy and positivity of the coaching staff and the team. Not to mention, they already have a Canadian from Hamilton on their roster. She also loves Bryant University’s size and atmosphere. It is a small, private school with small classes and a student body. She feels confident that it will suit her academic capabilities well and the route to the gym will not be very far!
Trpcic will be studying business. This decision stemmed from her interest in economics and accounting. She knows that attending one of the best business schools in the nation will lay a foundation for success.
This was her first year with the Tri-County Thunder and she notes that it was a great experience. For Trpcic was a positive change of atmosphere allowing her to glean knowledge from new coaches and grow with new teammates. She believes that she has become a true, multidimensional player.
As for the final tournament, she stresses the importance of the team moving the ball and winning as a unit.
Trpcic would like to thank her head coach, Allan Bush because she believes she would not have been noticed by Bryant without the tournament exposure.
Additionally, she is thankful for her parents and siblings. She is not the only Trpcic family member who will be playing Division I basketball in her family. Trpcic grew up watching her brother and sister play basketball and is very thankful for the exposure to the game that grew into a love for the sport.
