A force on the court and off it, Kingswood Oxford varsity girls basketball senior Madi Henry ’19 is the Wyvern of the Week.
On a team in transition, Henry has taken on a leadership role as a senior.
“As a senior my role has changed on the team by stepping up as a voice on the court as well as encouraging the rest of the team to push themselves,” Henry said.
Henry has been playing basketball since she was in the third grade and she is drawn to the action the sport provides.
“The thing that I love most about the sport is the constant intensity both mentally and physically,” Henry said.
“Madi is a tremendous senior leader and playing a new position this season and adapting well,” Kingswood Oxford coach Quinn O’Brien said. “She does everything asked of her and is a great team player, tremendous help defender and respected teammate.”
The Wyverns are in the home stretch of the season and with nine games left, Henry will continue to work hard and be a leader.
“My personal goal for the rest of the season is to continuing my large presence on defense,” Henry said. “My goals for the team are for us to stay positive and work hard everyday.”
