The 25-year old Victorian was handed leadership responsibilities by ex-Diamond and coach Simone McKinnis for the Melbourne Vixens‘ inaugural season of the new league. Moloney rewarded that faith with her exceptional form, leading her young side to the minor premiership in 2017.
Moloney has already won a competition with the Vixens in 2014 when they took out the ANZ Championship. The young dynamo from Diamond Creek had caught the attention of national selectors at the 19/U National Netball Championships just one year earlier, when she was recognised as tournament MVP.
Moloney’s underage representative honours were unmatched by her peers. She was Captain of the 19/U Victorian State team and Vice Captain of the 19/U Australian side. She also represented Victoria and Australia at 21/U level. She has been a mainstay of the Australian Fast5 Flyers since that format was introduced on the international stage.
Diamonds Coach Lisa Alexander was vocal about Moloney’s good form in season 2017 as the athletic midcourter pushed her claim for national squad selection. She was rewarded with a Diamonds’ berth as part of the 2017 Constellation Cup team.
Away from the court, Moloney is studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Health Science with the Australian Catholic University.
