Maddy McAuliffe’s promotion from Brisbane South Wildcats to Sunshine Coast Lightning is testament to the young Queenslander’s work ethic and tenacity.
A quiet achiever who goes about her job diligently, the Wing Defence has taken her game to a new level in her first season of elite netball. The opportunity to learn from arguably the world’s best Wing Defence in Laura Langman has provided a rare insight into what it takes to be at the top of the pile.
The gregarious go-getter has a maturity beyond her years and her experience representing Australia at 19/U and 21/U level holds her in good stead for the second instalment of Suncorp Super Netball in 2018.
The 22-year-old now has the opportunity to forge a career at the highest level and will handle any occasion with aplomb.
When McAuliffe isn’t training or playing, she’s busy completing a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) / Bachelor of Business (Public Relations).
