Lightning foundation player and Queensland local, Cara Koenen has announced herself as an elite Goal Shooter in recent seasons. Standing at 190cm, the shooter is mobile and athletic in the goal circle – especially her movement along the baseline.
Koenen finished the 2021 season being named the Member’s Player as well as Player’s Player of the Year. Cara has strengthened her combination with fellow Diamonds player Steph Wood throughout the pre-season and international Quad Series and will look to bring that strong form into the 2022 season.
