The Melbourne Vixens have finalised their 2022 squad, adding former West Coast Fever defender Olivia Lewis to the ranks for the upcoming season.

West Australian defender Olivia Lewis has signed with the Melbourne Vixens for 2022, finalising the Vixens squad for the upcoming season.

Lewis joins the Vixens after spending three years with the West Coast Fever, debuting during the 2019 Super Netball season. She has played 27 games with the Fever, winning the club’s coaches award in her first season.

The 22-year-old comes to the Vixens as a versatile defender, able to play as both goal defence and goal keeper. With the departure of Kadie-Ann Dehaney, she’ll prove to be a strong addition to the Vixens side in 2022.

Lewis made eight appearances in the green dress this season, having one intercept and three deflections.

West Coast Fever assistant coach Belinda Reynolds said Lewis was a well-respected and popular teammate, who’s positive attitude and commitment had been outstanding.

“Liv is always striving to improve herself as a player and a person and I know she will be a great asset to another club,” Reynolds said.

“I will certainly remain among her biggest fans, wherever she ends up playing in the future.”

“I’m really excited to be joining the Vixens in 2022 and continuing my netball at this level,” Lewis said .

“What drew me to the Vixens is how driven they are to get back to the top of the competition. The club has built a really strong team heading into next year so I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do.

“I would like to thank West Coast Fever and Netball WA for the support they’ve given me across my pathway journey. This is a big move, but I’m ready for the challenge and look forward to coming over to Melbourne in the coming weeks.”

Lewis completes the Vixens roster for the 2022 season, joining Mwai Kumwenda, Kate Eddy, Kiera Austin, Rahni Samason, Hannah Mundy, Kate Moloney, Liz Watson, Jo Weston and Emily Mannix.
