Besides that state title, Nadeau helped lead the Lady Irish to two other appearances in the state semifinals and one in the state quarterfinals.

She said of Trevecca, "I really like the coach and the team, and the campus is beautiful. Trevecca will be making the transition next year to Division II.

Assistant Coach Dave Weikel said, "I feel like Mackenzie was the piece of the puzzle we needed to get over the hump to finally win another state title. We had been to the state semis about eight years in a row, but we just couldn't win the big one until Mackenzie came along."
