“I’m completely thrilled to have Maddie on board,” said Almquist. “Maddie’s experience coaching at Wagner and coaching, as well as playing, at Hofstra are going to be instrumental for our program as we continue to build and grow. She brings energy, enthusiasm and an immediate connection with our scholar-athletes to our staff. On top of that, Maddie is an absolute workhorse, detail-oriented and a motivated learner.
