Every sport has players who embody the importance of team play, along with the need for family beliefs within a team. Mikhaela Donnelly is everything a coach looks for - passionate, aggressive on the court, loyal, competitive and a leader. Born in south east Queensland, she played soccer, touch football and volleyball. The talented point guard found a home in basketball and achieved FIBA national representative team honours (2009 and 2012), the Youth Olympic Games for Australia (2010) and two seasons with the AIS (2010-2012). These experiences allowed her to show her ability and be offered opportunities to lay the foundation for her career.
