Q&A with Deer Creek-Lamont’s Madelyn McReynolds – Presented by Cowley College

VYPE: When did you start playing your sport?

MM: I started playing when I was in first or second grade. I always loved it since all my older cousins and aunts played, so naturally, I wanted to play, I didn’t start loving it until I was in eighth grade.

VYPE: What has your sport taught you that you use daily?

Madelyn McReynolds: Playing my sport has taught me so much discipline and learning how to make sacrifices.

VYPE: What is your favorite part about being on a team?

MM: My favorite part about being on a team is that I can always count on people. I have a family I can always count on.

VYPE: Why are you passionate about your sport?

MM: I’m passionate about my sport because I want to be the best at everything I do, and I love the competition that comes with playing.

VYPE: Who is an athlete, professional or personal, that you look up to?

MM: I look up to Caitlyn Clark; she is one of the best college athletes and she had to work so hard to get where she is now. I strive to be her, and I have her work ethic.

VYPE: Who is your favorite teacher?

MM: My favorite teacher was Mrs. Tingley, my second-grade teacher. She was like a second mom to me. She took care of me as her own when I was sick.

VYPE: What or who inspires you?

MM: My parents inspire me. They push me every day to be my best, they show me the true

meaning of being selfless and they push me even harder in my sport. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.

VYPE: What teammate made the largest impact on you?

MM: The teammate with the biggest impact is probably Chloe Smith. She was a senior my junior year. She was truly and team player, she pushed us all every game we played.

VYPE: Here is your chance to give anyone you wish a shoutout!

MM: I would like to give a thank you to my mom, Amy McReynolds and my dad, Jeff McReynolds, for pushing so hard all these years, showing up to everything I do and supporting. I also want to thank my current coach, Wade Wright, for coming in and showing us that you care for us and that you want us to be better. I have become a better leader because of you.
