Pyramid Hill Football Netball Club is now a part of AFLW history.
The club's junior netball coach Lauren Driscoll was invited to toss the coin at Friday night's season opener between Richmond and Carlton at Ikon Park.
It's a moment that Driscoll will never forget.
"It was very exciting to toss the coin at Richmond's first ever AFLW game and now be a part of the club's history," Driscoll said.
"What was most exciting, which I didn't expect, was before the coin toss I was in the interchange box with all of the Richmond administration and they were so thrilled to get the women's team off the ground.
"There were so many emotions running high for them."
Driscoll was able to share the moment with Bendigo sport star and Carlton captain Kerryn Harrington who was out in the centre with Richmond's Katie Brennan.
"It was a bit overwhelming and very exciting. There was an incredible buzz around the entire ground," Driscoll said.
Above all Driscoll was pleased to see the growth of women's football.
"For women and girls in general it was a great moment," she said.
"There's an old saying 'you can't do what you can't see', so for women's football to be up an running is fantastic."
Pyramid Hill FNC was invited to toss the coin for its commitment to promoting a safe and healthy club environment through the Alcohol and Drug Foundation's Good Sports program.
Carlton 6.12 (48) defeated Richmond 2.2 (14).
