The recently crowned Laura Geitz Medalist is the first re-signing announcement from the Firebirds, in what has been labelled by the club as a a productive contracting period.

After tasting personal success in 2021, team success has been the deciding factor in Ravaillion signing on with the Firebirds for another two years.

“I signed on because I believe this club has so much potential,” Ravaillion said.
 
“I feel we showed glimpses of what we were capable of which is exciting for what’s ahead. In 2022 I want to be holding that trophy up with my team.”

After taking 2020 off for the birth of her daughter Georgie, Ravaillion has dominated in her first season back in the purple dress.

Firebirds coach Megan Anderson spoke glowingly of Ravaillion, who is a two time championship player with the club, and said she was confident she would lead the team forward.
 
“Kim Rav is an absolute professional, she brings so much energy, accountability, and drive to the team,” Anderson said.
 
“She’s always wanting the best from herself and her teammates and is continually pushing to learn and grow as a player and a person.
 
“Since having Georgie she’s so much more balanced and really see’s the best in all situations.
 
“Her positive, determined outlook really does lift the group and I have no doubt in 2022 we will continue to see her develop as a player.”

The Firebirds will make their second announcement tomorrow.
