MCHS announces Coach Adam Dennis to take the helm of the Lady Cubs basketball program.
Certainly no stranger to the sidelines and likely a recognizable face, Adam Dennis will take the reins as Coach Sonja Bowyer retires from coaching. Dennis joined the Lady Cubs staff in 2020 as an assistant coach. Prior to Madison, he was the boy's varsity coach at Switzerland County from 2014 - 2020, a varsity assistant from 2006-2014, and volunteered with the program in the 2005-2006 season. While basketball is his passion, he also coached varsity girls’ track and field from 2005 to 2011 and assisted with both the boys and girls varsity cross country teams during the same period, and has returned to assist his wife (head coach Meganmarie Dennis) from 2019 to present. “We are an active family with a passion for sports and pouring into young people,” he shared with a smile. “I am excited about working with the present, past, and future Lady Cubs as well as their families to continue to enhance the Lady Cubs Basketball experience. I have really enjoyed being a part of the Madison community academically and athletically.
Mr. Bronkella, as well as our administration, have worked really hard to give us some of the best facilities in our area. I can't wait to see our community and students rally around all of Madison's academic and athletic teams in celebration of their opportunity to compete and represent our school.
I am extremely thankful for the things God has allowed me to do for a living both here and in Switzerland County. I am also thankful for what Lady Cubs Basketball has done for me and my family so far and for the opportunity that has been presented to us now.”
“Adam’s infectious enthusiasm and high energy combined with his leadership skills and coaching experience made him an easy choice when Coach Bowyer notified me she was going to resign from coaching to further pursue her education,” shared Madison AD Joe Bronkella. “The girls appreciate his approach, respect his experience, and are very excited about the selection.”
Dennis hasn’t really stopped since the Lady Cubs wrapped up their season. He has made himself available for open gyms for the girls who are not in a spring sport and has already begun planning a camp for June. “We have a lot of momentum coming off of a very successful season,” Dennis continued. “I wanted to keep that going and be available for those who are able to and want to train.” With a very active social media presence, @Madison Lady Cubs Basketball (Facebook) / @madisonladycubs (IG) it is easy to keep up with them and follow along for schedule updates, open gym times, and camp information.
Dennis holds a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Education from Manchester University and a Masters of Science: Curriculum and Instruction from Walden University. He is a 7th-grade math teacher at Madison Junior High School. Prior to coming to Madison in August of 2020, he taught both junior high and high school math and physical education and also has experience in pre-Algebra, Algebra, Algebra 2, Geometry, AP Statistics, physical education, and weightlifting.
He and his wife, Meganmarie, live in Vevay with their children Maevry and Larkin. Look for him on a sideline or court near you, cheering for his Cubs and Bears.
Madison and Switzerland Co. will make up their baseball game on Friday. The game will now be a part of the Big Mac Classic at Madison with the Cubs & Pacers playing at 5 p.m. and Providence & South Dearborn playing at 7 p.m. Losers will play Sat. at 11 a.m.; Winners at 1 p.m.
