Growing up in Hamilton, Maggie was a champion in many sports – volleyball, bowling, tennis, softball, diving and swimming. She competed at the 1956 Olympic swimming trials, losing out to her teammate. Basketball was the sport where she made her mark as an elite player. She won numerous Ontario titles and appeared in six national championships winning the Canadian Senior ‘A’ Championship in 1961 – the first win for an eastern team since 1945.  She competed in the 1963 Pan Am Games at Sao Paulo, Brazil; was an alternate on the National Team for the 1967 Pan Am Games in Winnipeg and was a silver medalist with Team Ontario at the first Canadian Winter Games in 1967. Maggie moved to Peterborough in the 1960s, and led the Peterborough Keith Brown Jetettes to the 1968 Ontario Senior ‘A’ Basketball title, earning the team a trip to the Canadian Championships in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Maggie was an MVP and Top Scorer in the Peterborough Women’s Basketball League. She was noted for her smooth and effortless  jump-shot and free throw accuracy. Always a contender in the free throw contest at the Worlds Tournament in Newburg, NY,  she won one contest shooting 25 in a row. Maggie was an all-star pitcher whose trademark was control and a sneaky change-up. She won a 1968 Provincial Intermediate ‘A’ title with Peterborough; 1976 and 1978 Intermediate ‘A’ Provincial Championships and a 1980 Senior Tier II Ontario title with Lakefield Kingdon Lumber; several tournament championships and MVP awards; and Lakeshore Ladies Fastball League Championships where she received many all-star honours.
