Lewis re-signs: Vixens’ 2023 squad confirmed

26 days ago

Livewire defender Olivia Lewis has re-signed with the Melbourne Vixens, meaning all 10 members of the minor premiers’ 2022 squad will return in 2023.

The remaining nine squad members signed the maximum two-year deals ahead of the 2022 season, committing them for 2023.

Crossing from West Coast Fever ahead of the 2022 season, Lewis made her Vixens debut in Round 1 and had an impact every time she took the court through the season.

Her speed, elevation and footwork saw her create turnovers and pick up crucial intercepts and deflections against some of the competition’s most prolific shooters.

“I’m thrilled to retain our full team heading into next season,” said head coach Simone McKinnis OAM.

“Liv brings great energy to our team environment, she’s dynamic and exciting with her elevation and read of the game, so I’m really pleased she’ll be part of the Vixens again next year.”

“We had a strong season and I believe we can really build on it and improve again. I’m proud of our growth this season and the hard work every member of our team put in – and we know we have the depth, the talent and the work ethic to improve and give ourselves every chance to go one better in 2023.”

Training partners will be confirmed ahead of the 2023 season.
