Sunshine Coast Lightning foundation player and Queensland local, Cara Koenen saw a breakout year in her development in season 2019. Standing at 190cm, the shooter is mobile and energetic in the goal circle. After serving an apprenticeship of sorts under Caitlin Bassett for two years, 2019 has seen Koenen earn more court time at Goal Shooter. The versatility of Lightning’s line-up has also seen her venture into Goal Attack, developing her combination with Peace Proscovia.
Koenen’s rising profile saw her invited to join the Australian Diamonds squad camp at Netball Australia’s Centre of Excellence last year.
