Sara Edwards Rohner
Sara is a veteran of the sport, playing internationally for the USA Freedom and training with several AFLW teams, including the Western Bulldogs, Collingwood Magpies and Gold Coast Suns. Her athletic background includes soccer and international 7s and 15s rugby union. Sara founded the Centennial Tigers. She gets the utmost satisfaction from watching women transform through empowerment. Sara is the current president.
Ashlea hails from Perth, Western Australia. She is an enthusiastic and dedicated human and teammate. Her work as a nurse provides her with empathy and care, and these characteristics have shined throughout her time with the Tigers. Ashlea has a solid boot and can mark just about anything from the forward pocket position.
Amanda dabbled in sports throughout her life, including soccer and rugby in her teenage years. She started playing footy in 2018 and has found her home in the back pocket. Her strength and a solid boot keep the Tigers out of trouble on defense. She never gives up and works hard to crumb in the backline. Amanda is a founding member of the club and current secretary.
Carolyn’s love for Australian Rules Football is one for the books. She used to watch the game back in the 80s when ESPN broadcast games in the United States. When Carolyn found out both of her daughters wanted to play the game, her enthusiasm couldn’t be contained. Carolyn is no stranger to founding women’s sports teams either. She and her two sisters started one of the first all-women’s ice hockey teams in Pittsburgh back in the 1970s. She is a founding member of the Tigers and current treasurer.
Carly is one of the most-talented center halfbacks in the nation. Although a Colorado native, she first learned about footy while living in Sacramento, California. Her experience in various sports such as soccer, volleyball, track, basketball and crew give her the hand up when reading the field, ensuring quick decision making and communicating to teammates. Her long booming kick is one to be envied. Carly is a founding member and current member at-large.
Tami comes from a competitive, athletic background mostly consisting of volleyball. Her height, athleticism and desire to compete translate well to Australian rules football. She is a devoted teammate who isn’t afraid to take risks. Tami encompasses what it means to be a Tiger, and we are so glad she is part of our tribe.
Erin kicks goals out of nowhere. On defense, she smothers the ball out of nowhere, leaving only the lash of the longest blondest ponytail on the team. But don’t let her hot pink nails deceive, as the mom of three boys and a former softball and rugby player, she is a human jungle gym at home and a physical beast on the oval. Once, she broke her right ankle so bad, the doc could barely bare the sight. She recovered, stronger than ever, and now nothing makes her squirm, including the poop from the six chickens she raises out back: Sunny, Buffy, Foxy, Goldie, Rocky, and Barbie. Erin hails from Shenandoah, Iowa, and when not kicking goals or tossing feed, you’ll find her at a PTA meeting or her boys’ soccer practice.
