A valued member of the Perth Western Stars, she scored a crucial one-handed buzzer beater in the 2013 WNWBL Grand Final which led the Stars into overtime and to an eventual championship win. Making her international debut at the Canada 2011 under-25 Women’s Wheelchair Basketball World Championships, winning silver, Inglis made her first Australian Gliders team in 2013. Alongside future 3×3 basketball Commonwealth Games teammates Amber Merritt and Ella Sabljak, she returned home from the Osaka Cup with gold. In 2018, Inglis accepted a full athletic scholarship with NCAA Division I powerhouse, the University of Alabama.
