The Sunbury Jets Championship Women’s team is now locked and loaded, ready for a chance at a fourth consecutive title.
The Sunbury Basketball Association is pleased to announce the following signings to their State Championship Women’s side for the 2019 season.
The re-signing and retention of these major players is an important component of having a competitive women’s program that is able to have sustained success.
After three very successful seasons the women’s program will be looking at continue to build on their exceptional achievements. While winning has been a strong focus, player development and creating a strong culture has been the forefront of the program.
Josie Stockill has recently spent a season with the Deakin Melbourne Boomers in the WNBL as a development player. Meanwhile Courtenay Wragg has been in a similar position working on her craft with the Bendigo Spirit.
“We have been fortunate enough to have a number of players over the last three years get WNBL opportunities. It’s always great when we can get them back to play for another season in a Jets uniform.” Said Coach Kennedy.
The retention of the key player Chelsea Burns and return of Monique Stevens after having her first child will also bring some key experience and leadership.
“Both players will play an important role in the program and their experience and leadership will be very valuable.”
The Women’s team have also retained Chloe Tidswell, whilst also be adding Chloe Angove and Emily Conn to their roster to play between the State Championship Women’s program and its newly elevated Youth Championship Women’s program.
“It is great to be able to provide some opportunity to some of the emerging talent we have at the club. Both Chloe and Emily had very strong campaigns for our Youth team and are ready to play roles in our State Champ side now.”
The SCW team will make one more announcement in the next week.
