Moloney was handed leadership responsibilities by former Diamond and Vixens Head Coach Simone McKinnis for the Melbourne Vixens‘ inaugural season of the new league and has held that post ever since. Moloney has rewarded that faith with consistent form, leading her young side to the minor premiership in 2017.
Kate Moloney won a competition with the Vixens in 2014 when they took out the ANZ Championship. The young dynamo from Diamond Creek had caught the attention of national selectors at the 19/U National Netball Championships just one year earlier when she was recognised as tournament MVP.
Moloney’s underage representative honours were unmatched by her peers. She was Captain of the 19/U Victorian State team and Vice Captain of the 19/U Australian side. She also represented Victoria and Australia at 21/U level. She has been a mainstay of the Australian Fast5 Flyers since that format was introduced on the international stage, including as Captain in 2017.
Moloney debuted for the Diamonds in 2017 and was part of the successful 2018 Constellation Cup team, and the 2019 Quad Series side.
Away from the court, Moloney is studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Health Science with the Australian Catholic University.
