Before making her Aussie Stingers debut at just 17, Bronte Halligan represented Australia at the 2013 FINA World Junior Championships and the 2014 FINA World Youth Championships.

Since then she has gone to consistently represent Australia at the highest level, including at the 2019 FINA World Championships where Halligan and her Stingers teammates won the Bronze medal after defeating Hungary.

Now a veteran member of the squad, Halligan celebrated her 100th cap for the Stingers at the 2019 World Super League final where she also earned MVP of the match against Hungary.

Halligan splits her time between Australia and the USA where she plays for the UCLA Bruins in the college system.
