Swan Districts youngster Mikayla Bowen was one of the first two players signed to West Coast's inaugural AFL Women's squad, along with Rosie Deegan.
West Coast career[edit | edit source]
A diehard Eagles supporter, Bowen was selected in the 2018 All-Australian under-18 side and the AFL Women's Academy following a strong performance for WA. Having trained with West Coast's academy for some time, she was announced as an inaugural signing in January 2019. On being signed, Bowen was described as a contested ball beast.
