Biography

Working her way up through the junior ranks at Bulleen Boomers, Garrick played for Vic Country at the U16 and U18 AJC's before grabbing a spot with Bendigo Spirit in the WNBL as a 17-year old.

She earned gold at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in 2009 and although she only played in three games, gained valuable experience at the 2011 U19 World Championships where Australia finished fourth.

Back in the WNBL, Garrick made the move to the AIS where she received more court time and honed her skills. She returned to the Spirit in 2012 and was a part of back-to-back Championships in 2012-13 and 2013-14.

Closing in on 100 SEABL matches, the two-guard had a breakout season in 2014 and averaged 19 points, seven rebounds and two assists to earn the MVP.

Since 2015, Garrick has represented the Melbourne Boomers where her point production has rapidly increased to average double-figures in scoring over the past two seasons.

She has also shot at least 37% from the three-point line and her form earned her a spot with the Australian Opals at the FIBA Women's Asia Cup in 2017 when they won the silver medal.
