Before coming to Michigan Palmer played one year at UC San Diego earning Rookie of the Year honors. She has been a valuable asset to the team since joining her Sophomore year and will be an important factor in the team's success this season. As the Wolverines find their chemistry this year look for her as a staple of thier attack. Questions about chemistry? Ask Maddie, she is a neuroscientist.
Maddie knows how to get to the goal and expects to score. She plays without fear and is blunt about her expectations: a National Championship, "duh." Palmer is also a gifted student, studying neuroscience and performing biomedical research on zebrafish in hopes of attending medical school.
