Stengle made his debut for the club in 2022 after previous seasons at Richmond and Adelaide, having been delisted from the Crows prior to the 2021 season. In an impressive first year at Geelong, the 24-year-old played all 25 games, kicking 53 goals, earning All Australian selection and a premiership medal.
Stengle said he was happy with his decision to sign on for an additional 12 months, revealing that he sees himself staying in Geelong long-term.
“I'm really happy to sign an extension to stay at Geelong,” Stengle said to club media.
“Right now, signing a 12-month extension was the right thing for me, however I see a long football future for myself here at Geelong.
“I'm really enjoying being part of this playing group and I feel really connected to my teammates.
“Last year was a memorable year for the Club and for me personally, and for the next two years I'm looking forward to working hard to keep improving and doing myself, my family and the Cats fans proud.”
