Talented defender Michaela Sokolich-Beatson was reduced to a sideline role in 2020 after a ruptured Achilles tendon ruled her out for the season. A product of Whangaparoa College, Sokolich-Beatson was first chosen for the Mystics in 2016 and will be back for a sixth year in 2021, seeking to re-establish her impressive credentials and all-round playing standards. An outstanding athlete, Sokolich-Beatson is a tireless and effective defender on both wings, has a devastating turn of speed and a nose for intercept opportunities. She has developed strong leadership skills after captaining the triumphant NZU21 team to the World Youth Cup title in Botswana in 2017 before going on to make her debut for the Silver Ferns in early 2018.
