By the time she was 19 years old, Logarzo had won a Westfield W-League championship, captained the Westfield Young Matildas and made her senior Westfield Matildas debut.
By 21 years old, Logarzo made the decision to quit the game. It has been a long road back, one that required self reflection and a new appreciation for the sport that is now her life.
