13 MAY 2021 — After working tirelessly behind the scenes at the NSW Breakers, Maddy Darke brightens the future for Western Australia in new 2-year signing.
This is every athletes dream — to be wanted, valued and appreciated. Most athletes spend their whole athletic careers never getting the call up, so to see Maddy Darke offered the opportunity to pack her bags and move to the other side of Australia to play for Western Australia is heart warming and exciting. At only 20 years old, Maddy has an incredible future ahead of her.
When we first met, she said she wanted to go all in and it’s unreal to see her hard work has paid off. She started working with us, knowing she could have easily just followed the program that was provided by the club. She invested more in herself then was ever expected of her. In the last 7 months, she has applied the same disciplined work ethic to her athletic preparation as she has to her batting and keeping behind the stumps. She has gone from strength to strength.
While we will miss her smile in the gym, her great energy and the head-down, bum-up work ethic the whole team here has come to appreciate about her, there really is no better way to say goodbye then to know she’s seeing her dreams come to life.
Congrats Maddy, you deserve to feel so proud.
