Mckenzie Adams’ career in Germany’s Bundesliga is flourishing. After two seasons with Black Aachen, the last in which she was the team’s captain and highest scorer, called the attention of many of the league’s top squads. SSC Schwerin, current Bundesliga’s champions, was one of these teams, and ended up making the best offer to the player, recently announcing her in its website as one of the team’s new signings.
Adams is a skilled 26-year-old 6’3″ opposite. She graduated from The University of Texas At San Antonio in 2013. She became the first All-American in program history after earning AVCA honorable mention honors. However, all of that almost never came to be if it wasn’t for Mckenzie’s parents. She curiously told her new team in an interviews that if it wasn’t for them, she would probably be still playing softball today:
“When I was ten years old, my parents wanted me to stop baseball and play either softball or volleyball. I did not feel like either, but when I got bored at home, my parents decided to put me in volleyball. Luckily, the appetite, as the saying goes, came with the food.”
