Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce the recommitment of two of the break out players from the 2023 Premiership season. Please congratulate Rach and Quirky.

Rachael Slater is one of the EFNL’s best young talents and almost capped off the perfect season in 2023 finishing with Blue Ribbon Medal in the Grand Final, a Premiership medallion, a second consecutive Ellen Johnson Medal and finishing second in the league Best & Fairest. Rachael is powerful, aggressive and only getting better and we can’t wait to see where she takes her footy in 2024!

Rach Quirk’s combination of athleticism, fierce attack on the ball and willingness to do all the 1%’s to make the team better added a huge amount to the squad in 2023. Finishing third in the league Best & Fairest and named Ruck in the Team of the Year, Quirky will only keep getting better!


Congratulations to Rachel Slater for being awarded the Blue Ribbon Medal for her outstanding Best on Ground performance in the Division 1 Grand Final.

Despite a heavy tag, Rachael’s performance proved to be decisive in a tight contest. According to Premier Data she had 24 disposals, 16 contested possessions, 6 marks (inc. 5 intercept marks), 4 clearances, 11 inside 50s, 7 tackles, 1 gamebreaking goal and 163 Ranking Points.

Congratulations Rachael on a great game to cap off your season!
