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.
Kim Dickey first learned of Aussie rules football in 2018. She participated in many athletics during her life, but footy was the first team sport she played. Her height and determination give her the advantage as a tall mark in the forward line. Kim is an integral part of the team; she’s incredibly loyal and dedicated. Her love for her teammates and the game is admirable. Kim is a founding member. Read Kim’s Essay Here.
“Koo” is undoubtedly the most-consistent athlete on the Tigers. Her ability to master technical skills make her a threat on the field. She doesn’t hesitate to crumb for the ball and sacrifice her body in midfield play–this shouldn’t be surprising seeing how she’s a Denver Firefighter. Koo makes for an excellent marking target, as she connects with teammates and catches the footy almost every time. Koo is a founding member.
