Madison Prespakis arrived at Carlton a ready-made AFLW star, quickly forging her way into the Blues best. A no-nonsense, combative midfielder, Prespakis has won awards wherever she’s played — including All-Australian selection and best-and-fairest honours in her under-18s career. Prespakis was awarded both the AFLPA 2019 AFLW Best First Year Player and the 2019 NAB AFLW Rising Star award for her breakout season, as well as being named All Australian. In 2020, Prespakis took her game to the next level. Not dropping below 17 disposals in her seven games, Prespakis stamped herself as one of the best players in the competition, taking home the AFLW's Best and Fairest award. In 2021, Prespakis continued her dominant midfield performance, adding some impressive forward craft to her resume.
