Maddy Fortune, who will be a senior at McFarland this school year, announced on Twitter Wednesday that she plans to attend UW-Stevens Point and compete in volleyball.
Fortune, a setter, was a first-team all-conference selection in girls volleyball in the Rock Valley Conference during the WIAA’s alternate fall season in the spring.
Fortune had 23 assists for McFarland against top-seeded and top-ranked Appleton North during a WIAA Division 1 state semifinal in the alternate fall season in the spring state tournament at Kettle Moraine High School in Wales. Appleton North defeated fourth-seeded and eighth-ranked McFarland 25-19, 25-15, 25-19.
McFarland normally has played in Division 2.
The Spartans are coached by Trish Fortune, Maddy’s mother.
Maddy Fortune tweeted: “I am very excited to announce that I have committed to UW Stevens Point to continue my academic and volleyball career. I would like to thank my family, friends, teammates and coaches. Go Pointers!”
