AFLW Best & Fairest votes: -

A crafty goalkicker who is difficult to defend. Wallace played Australian Rules growing up but switched to soccer in the absence of female football pathways. She joined Adelaide United in 2008 and represented the Australian Junior Matildas in 2009. Wallace excelled in the 2017 Adelaide Footy Women’s League for Adelaide University and finished as the competition’s leading goalkicker, also winning a premiership with Norwood in the SANFL women’s competition. Wallace ran the New York Marathon in 2014 and remains an elite endurance athlete. Wallace became an Adelaide player with pick No.38 in the 2017 draft.
