Hello! My name is Maddie McCunn #13 and I am a freshman setter from Eureka High School. I am majoring in Nursing and I’m also on the softball team here at ICC! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family and being outdoors.
The last three months went by super fast! It felt like it was just yesterday we were doing team building activities during pre-season. This past Wednesday, we played Southwestern Illinois College at home for our first round of playoffs. We also celebrated our sophomores as they played their last game in Ramsey Gym. Coming out with lots of energy, we ended up defeating SWIC in 4 sets. Friends and family members celebrated with us at the end of the match and provided cake and punch!
This Saturday we made the trip down to Lewis & Clark to face Lincoln Land. This game determined if we made it to Nationals in West Virginia or not. Unfortunately, Lincoln Land came out on top, but we put so much heart into the game. Despite the loss, we still had fun on the court with each other. I, along with the other freshmen, will miss every sophomore immensely and will miss all the jokes we had on and off the court. Thanks to all of the coaches who put in hours of time to the sport of volleyball! The cougs will be back at it next semester, but unfortunately, Sam Garcia and I will not be there due to the softball season!
