Makenzie Adamo

Treats from Oz

Mak was introduced to the USAFL by Sun's veteran, Helen Mondia-Harvey, one of the early female USAFL footballers.  She originally recruited Mak for the co-ed tag league, but once she had a taste of tackling, she was hooked!

Mak quickly found her spot in defense and has played for the USA Liberty at the 2015 Parallel Cup (Florida) & the 2017 International Cup (Australia). She played for the USA Women's team at the first International match against the Bogota Bulldogs in Colombia (2019). While in Colombia, she served alongside USAFL UA Laurie Rupe on a panel discussion with the Australian Ambassador. 

A major highlight for her is to have played footy for the USA on 3 continents!

As a club administrator, Mak has served on the Sacramento Suns Australian Football Club board since 2015 with various roles including Member-at- Large 2015-2016, Director of Events 2017, Director of Operations 2018 and was elected President in 2019.

Mak purchased a Geelong jumper while in Australia, so now considers herself a proud Cat.

In her new role on the USAFL Executive Board, Mak is most interested in club recruitment and retention, but eager to help wherever needed.
