Melbourne Vixens captain Kate Moloney has signed on with the Vixens for the 2022 season, marking her 10th year at the club.

Melbourne Vixens captain Kate Moloney has put pen to paper and signed on at the club for another season.

Signing on for the 2022 season, it will be Moloney’s 10th year at the Vixens, where she is a two time championship player (2014, 2020).

Moloney made her debut for the Vixens in 2013, playing 126 games for the side in that time. She’s been leading the Vixens from 2017 when she took over from Madi Browne. She is also a two time Sharelle McMahon Medallist, taking out the award back-to-back in 2020 and 2021.

This season was another stellar one for the star mid-courter in what was a hard year for the Vixens on the court.

The Vixens only won two games for the season, but Moloney lead from the front both on and off the court, and was a mentor to first year player Hannah Mundy.

Moloney had 154 goal assists for the season and was just as good defensively as she was offensively, having eight intercepts and 19 deflections throughout the season.

Moloney is the first player to recommit to the Vixens for the 2022 season, joining coach Simone McKinnis who signed a four year contract extension last week.

“I’m so excited to have signed on with the Vixens, and to be coming into my tenth year at the club,” Moloney said.

“I absolutely love the Vixens and everything the team, from players to staff, stands for so this was a no-
brainer for me.

“We’ve taken a lot of learnings from this year, and I know we’re going to put that into our efforts for the
2022 season, starting now. We’re eyeing off the trophy.”

In more off season news for the Vixens, they have confirmed that goaler Kaylia Stanton won’t return to the club after just one season at the club.

General Manager – Vixens, Performance and Pathways, Rebekah Webster thanked Stanton for her time at the club.

“Kaylia has been a great asset for the team this year, on and off the court, and we thank her for her contribution,” Webster said.

The Vixens are set to announce their second signing tomorrow.
