It is a massive honour and I am super excited – I can’t wait get into pre-season and meet all the other girls and get stuck into it – Nina Morrison


It is an absolute honour to be drafted to Geelong, it is a dream come true. A surreal feeling and I can’t be happier- Sophie Van De Heuvel


Very relieved – I can’t wipe the smile off my face. I am so excited and can’t wait to start now – Madison Prespakis


Overwhelming – I just burst into tears once my name was called out and didn’t expect to have that sort of reaction – Jordyn Allen


It is a really an amazing feeling, but you feel nervous at the time. It is a lot of relief once you are up there, and really looking forward to playing for Melbourne – Tyla Hanks


I am lost for words for it. I never thought the day would come that I would be sitting in there, so to get my name read out with the Geelong Cats is something I will remember forever and cherish – Rebecca Webster


All the hard work has paid off. It’s a dream come true. I’m a little emotional too, but it’s exciting times – Nikki Gore


Very surprised, that is for sure. I definitely didn’t expect it. I know there is a lot of heard work to come – as everyone says it is one thing to be drafted, but another to get games and have a good career – Eleanor Brown


It was really exciting, and probably something I didn’t expect (1st round) either, but when I heard my name read out, it was an unbelievable feeling and can’t wait to get started – Katie Lynch
