STRAIGHT FROM ABBY

Born and raised in country South Australia, living the life of a farm kid, footy and netball was our go to sport. Sport was in our blood, we didn’t know any different and what got us through the week was the weekend ahead, filled with sport.
I finally made the switch from netball to basketball at 13.

I moved to Canberra when I was 16 to attend the AIS.
Since then I have represented Australia at all levels, Gems u/19’s world championships Sapphires u/21 world championships, Opals world championships and also, the London Olympic Games.
I’ve also played in America for the Seattle Storm, and in Perpignan, France and Pécs, Hungary.
