CARLTON'S longest serving AFLW Captain, fourth-most games in Club history and a three-time All-Australian, but there are still a few more things to tick off the list the fearless and humble leader.

From leaving home at 15 to play basketball to playing 52 consecutive games for the Blues, Kerryn Peterson has spent half of her life playing elite-level sports and has had her family supporting her the whole way.
