The Boomers new signing has the club and Madgen herself thrilled.

“I am super excited to be back playing for the Boomers.

“From the board, the employees, the coaching staff to the playing group it is obvious to see there is a great culture and vibe and I am really looking forward to being part of that again, it feels like a homecoming for me.

Madgen, will re-join the Boomers after playing and leading the club from 2012-2016.

After stints with the WNBA team, Phoenix Mercury, and Pszczółka AZS UMCS Lublin in Poland, Madgen returned to Australia to recover from an ACL injury.

Working hard at recovery saw her secure a place back into the Australian Opals side ahead of the 2018 FIBA World Cup, then returning to the WNBL to play for Townsville, where she was one of their most consistent players.

Madgen holds the Boomers in high regard and is looking forward to being able to help complete the team in an exciting year for the league – open to only Oceania players.

“The club has a great history, being the longest running female professional sports team in Australia and that says a lot about it as a club.

“I am excited to build on a great season the Boomers had last year and can’t wait to get to work with the girls.”
