General Manager Reece Turner expressed his joy of having Ella back at the club.

“Ella is a vital piece for our organisation both on and off the court. Already a leader within our group, Ella is loved by all, she is one of the hardest workers and does everything to make the team better”.

On the back of a big year from the Lightning brand, Ella is looking forward to coming back to Adelaide.

“I’m super excited to be back with the Lightning this season. I’ve loved being a part of the club and I believe we started to build something pretty special last year which I can’t wait to continue to build on. I’m keen to get started and carry on learning and developing under Nat and all the staff that support us”.
