Alexia Hamilton, Hannah Dunn and Jacqueline Parry are off to the AFLW

Star after star after star came out of the Queanbeyan Tigerettes this year.

Alexia Hamilton, Hannah Dunn and Jacqueline Parry have all been drafted to AFLW sides.

Hamilton and Dunn are off to the Gold Coast Suns, while Parry is off to the Melbourne Demons.

The youngest of the three, Hamilton, was just with her family and friends at a local restaurant when her name was called out.

Even though she knew she was in with a good chance, it was still a dream come true.

'We kind of knew it was coming, but nothing beats the reaction when you hear your name," Hamilton said.

"It was amazing after being a dream for so long.

"It's still surreal."

The opportunity presented itself to the 19-year-old when she was in the Gold Coast watching her sister Jayde play nationals.

"At the time, my manager organised a coffee with the Suns coach who invited me to a training season and it went from there," she said.

The accurate goal kicker is also accomplished at judo, but was forced to choose either that or AFL.

"With every elite sport, there comes a time where you have to make a choice and put all your time into one focus," she said.

"For me, I didn't have enough time to do everything, so I took a break from judo about a year ago as I reached my peak by competing at the World Championships."

She was drafted to the Suns as pick 38.

Queanbeyan Tigerettes captain Hannah Dunn was at work sitting in her friend's office when she was drafted at pick 22.

"I am quite proud of myself that I am able to finally get to this stage," Dunn said.

"I've been working towards it since they started the AFL competition, so it means everything to me.

"It's exciting and I can't wait to play at that high level.

"It's daunting to think I'll be lining up against people you see on television."

Experience playing in the SANFL helped her cause tremendously.

"It came about when I played in the SANFL," Dunn said.

"They get all the stats and film all the games so they can send it to clubs."

Patrick Dangerfield is her idol as the 28-year-old was made to support the Geelong Cats by her fiance.

"Growing up, my family didn't watch any sport, so this is all fairly new to me," she said.

"My fiance goes for the Cats and made me pick a team when we got together.

"I really admire the way Patrick Dangerfield plays and I think he's elite."

Dunn considers her biggest strength to be her ability to win contested balls.

"I don't consider myself as a good runner, so I'm happy to go in and do the dirty work."

Out of the three girls, Parry was probably the most nervous when she heard she was drafted.

"I can't remember the moment much to be honest," Parry said.

"I was very nervous and thought I was going to throw up.

"When my name was announced, I just sat there in shock and didn't really react."

This was literally a dream come true for the 23-year-old.

"Ever since I was a little kid, I always wanted to play professional sport and have always loved the sport as my dad was obsessed with it," she said.

"I'm very excited to play with Daisy Pearce, who is the person I look up to."

The girls head over to their respective clubs soon.
