Hear from Maddy
- How did you get involved in sitting volleyball?"I was introduced while at an 18-and-under standing volleyball tournament in Orlando. I was confronted by Steve Bishop, a member of the USA Volleyball Sitting Volleyball Commission, and I thought I was going to be told I couldn't play with my prosthetic because I have been told that in the past. Instead, he told me his position and invited me to try out for the U.S. Women's Sitting National Team in Orlando later that month. I went and met the entire team as well as the coaches. I made the A2 (second team), and after a 10-day period at our training center in Edmond, Oklahoma, I got the opportunity to play against Ukraine in an exhibition and got pulled up to the national ream."
