It was a huge evening for Bendigo Pioneer Emily Everist last night. 
The 18-year-old defender was taken with Hawthorn's pick number 25 at the AFLW draft.
Remarkably, Everist only started playing football in January this year after converting from soccer. 
She will enter a completely new side, with Hawthorn being an expansion team heading into the 2022/2023 season.
