It only seemed natural that Chanel Gomes would progress to the Australian team given her outstanding resume as a junior.
She was joint winner of the 2010 Most Valuable Player at the 21/U national championships and was also named winner of the prestigious Gweneth Benzie Award that same year, which recognised the athlete at the Australian Institute of Sport that had the most potential to become a Diamond.
Gomes represented Australia at the FastNet and Fast5 format in 2010, 2011 and 2012 before being called into the Diamonds team for the 2012 Quad Series, making her debut in the second game at Newcastle.
She was part of the Diamonds team that toured England in 2013.
The talented defender spent four seasons playing with West Coast Fever in the ANZ Championship
