Macksville’s Megan Schroeder – Blue Dragon Spotlight Presented By Hutchinson Community College

By Matt Browning

Megan Schroeder of Macksville is the Hutchinson Community College Coach of the Month. Schroeder played for the Blue Dragons and was a part of a team that won the Region 6 Tournament and NJCAA runner-up.

“Aside from the on the court success, I developed some lifelong friendships,” Schroeder said. “A couple of my teammates became lifelong friends and that is one of the coolest things about being a college athlete. I also loved getting to play with girls from different backgrounds.”

Schroeder said the tradition of producing successful athletes from successful programs was what drew her to Hutch CC.

“The community and the boosters are so supportive and that creates an awesome environment,” Schroeder said. “Coach Ontjes and his coaching staff have such good basketball IQs and they know how to get the best out of players. It takes a lot of work and time, but it is worth it!.”

While the X’s and O’s they used at Hutchinson were hard to take with her to Macksville due to the complexity, Schroeder did take how to prepare for an opponent from her time as a Blue Dragon.

“Sometimes I felt like I knew the plays of the opposing team better than the opposing team knew them,” Schroeder said. “We went into every game prepared and knew what to expect. I don’t do a very good job of that as a coach, but that is something I continue to work on.”
