Varsity Girl’s Basketball, Guard, #4
Maddie Hill is an explosive player on Coach Snyder’s 6-3 varsity girls basketball team. Averaging 7 points per game*, she’s scored 42 points over the course of 6 games this season. On Tuesday night versus the Sultan Turks, I watched her put up 2 three’s in a row effortlessly. A transfer last year to Archbishop Murphy, this is her second year on the team.
When not on the court for the Wildcats, Hill plays for the Seattle Future Black team. The team trains rigorously, bringing in renowned NBA and WNBA skills trainer Chris Hyppa once a week. On top of that the team practices 2-3 times each week for about 2.5 hours each day.
Hill has been playing basketball since she was 4, and says her favorite part of playing the game is surprising people with her ability because of her height. She stands 5’4″, a full 6 inches shorter than her tallest teammate. But Hill’s height doesn’t matter on the court, as her stats prove she is a powerful player.
When asked about what she’s looking forward to this season with the Wildcats, Hill said, “I can’t wait to see how far we go this season. We have grown so much as a team and I’m excited to see what we can do if and when adversity hits.”
