Multiple Best & Fairest honours at just 20 years old is nothing short of extraordinary, yet Georgia Patrikios is nowhere near reaching her ceiling.
The decorated on-baller pieced together a dazzling follow-up to her equally impressive debut campaign, building upon her well-established midfield prowess, class through congestion and silky skills to chart among her side’s best week after week.
Patrikios averaged 24 disposals per game – up from 16 in her debut season – to lead St Kilda’s young midfield, before setting a new club record for most touches in a game (30) during the final match of the year against West Coast.
By season's end, Patrikios earned her second Best & Fairest, was named in the AFLW Team of the Year, All-Australian and AFL Players’ Association 22Under22 squads and finished in the top-10 of the AFL Coaches’ Association AFLW Champion Player of the Year, charting as the youngest player on the esteemed list.
