The glue that held the side together both on and off the field, newly appointed co-captain Hannah Priest exceeded all expectations in her maiden season at the helm. Priest was a reliable force across St Kilda's defensive half, guiding her side out of trouble countless times through her leadership and cool head under pressure. The AFLW Team of the Year inductee was at her best when the Saints’ backs were against the ropes, with her displays against accomplished opposition holding her in high regard across the competition. Priest barely took so much as a backwards step – even through the Saints’ tough run – throughout the year to round out her brilliant season as a leader. Along with a top-10 finish at St Kilda’s best and fairest, Priest was awarded the AFLW Crest Award for upholding the values of the club.
