ZACH MOULT NAMED VYC COBRA MEN’S HEAD COACH
Moult makes his VYC debut following four seasons as the Cobras Under 18-1 Boys Head Coach, leading the team to the state’s best regular season record, a Final Four berth in the Victorian Championship (VC) division, and a top-five finish at the National Junior Classic in 2019. Moult guided the U18-1 Boys to a Silver Medal at the 2018 National Junior Classic, and the U18 Boys to a State Championship silver medal in 2016.
Moult also served as a Development Coach for the Victoria Metro U18 Boys earlier this year, with the team winning gold at the Australian Junior Championships in April.
Kilsyth Manager of Basketball Operations, Mark Watkins, is excited to see Moult step-up to lead the VYC Men in 2020, with his appointment highlighting the strength of the Junior Cobras program and coaching pathway.
“I am very pleased to announce Zach as our VYC Men’s Head coach for 2020,” Watkins said.
“This is reward for all Zach’s hard work and success with our Under 18 Boys teams – he deserves this appointment and it’s the next step in his coaching pathway.”
“His job will be to prepare the next group of VYC Men to hopefully play for our NBL1 team in years to come.”
Former VYC championship-winning player Zac Wuersching will join Moult as the VYC Men’s Assistant Coach. The Cobra Men are set to tip-off their preseason campaign in late October, with the Big-V regular season tipping-off in mid-March, 2020.
CLAIRE KNIGHT RETURNS TO LEAD VYC WOMEN FOR THIRD STRAIGHT SEASON
Knight returns to lead the Cobra Women for a third straight season, following an impressive 2019 campaign which saw Kilsyth return to the postseason for the second consecutive season. The Cobra Women boasted a 16-6 regular season record in 2019, tied for third in the VYC standings. Knight also led the Under 21 Cobra Women this season, recording an impressive second place finish in the Victorian Championship (VC) division.
Knight’s strong year on the sidelines saw her named as an Assistant Coach for the Victorian Women’s Under 20 State Team, which will compete at the Australian Championships in February 2020.
Kilsyth Manager of Basketball Operations, Mark Watkins, is excited to have Knight back for a third season, with Knight’s rapid development of the VYC Women’s program setting the team up for a big 2020 season.
“I’m pleased that Claire is continuing as our VYC Women’s Head Coach for a third season,” Watkins said.
“The club is looking for Claire to continue to build the program she has worked hard on establishing.
“Her goal will be to advance further into playoffs and win a VYC Championship, and at the same time prepare the girls to go the next level in the NBL1.”
