Roxanne Roux
Selected at: no.12
Age: 17
Position: Forward / ruck
Drafted from: East Fremantle
Occupation: Student
Cooper’s comments: Roxy was named 2019 All Australian in the U18s. She performed strongly for East Fremantle, starring in their WAFLW Premiership win. Roxy is an exciting forward prospect who is quick off the mark and has a very strong overhead grab. She possesses an excellent vertical leap that also allows her to pinch hit in the ruck. She was the second leading goal scorer in the WAFLW in 2019.

Mim Strom
Selected at: no.21
Age: 17
Position: Ruck
Drafted from: South Fremantle / Swan Districts
Occupation: Student
Cooper’s comments: Mim started the season for South Fremantle in the Rogers Cup (U18s) before getting a permit to play league football for Swan Districts. Mim flourished in the second half of the season leading the ruck for Swan Districts and also for WA in the U18s carnival, where she was named All Australian. She taps the ball well and is excellent below her knees. Mim possesses a huge amount of upside and has the desire to continue to improve.

Ann McMahon
Selected at: no.35
Age: 25
Position: Midfielder / forward
Drafted from: East Fremantle
Occupation: Police officer
Cooper’s comments: Ann suffered an ACL injury in the early part of the 2018 season and returned midway through the 2019 WAFLW season, picking up immediately where she left off. She made a smooth transition to East Fremantle having previously played at West Perth. Ann was an important player in the Sharks’ premiership winning team with her ability to play a variety of roles through the midfield and also forward. She is hard at the ball and possesses good skills and decision making

Emma O’Driscoll
Selected at: no.51
Age: 19
Position: Key defender
Drafted from: Swan Districts
Occupation: Student
