The Lady Cobras have signed point guard Taylor Lee for the 2018 SEABL season.
The 21 year old Lee gives the Lady Cobras a quick and exciting presence at the point guard position, with her elite speed enabling her to create plays off the dribble while being a disruptive force on the defensive end.
“Taylor is young, dynamic point guard who we are excited to have join our program,” Lady Cobras coach Sam Woosnam said.
“It was very important to find a player that is fast up and down the floor, and her ability to push the ball will suit the players we have and our style of game. Taylor is also a great defender and we are really excited about what she will provide to the group.”
Lee spent 2017 with Knox in the Big-V Championship division, helping lead the Raiders to a semi final berth while averaging a team-best 3.4 assists per game. Her playmaking ability could prove to be a perfect compliment to a loaded Lady Cobras front court, featuring All-SEABL imports Angela Beadle and Jasmine Gill, and talented veterans Sarah Parsons and Rosie Moult.
Lee joins Jenna Verhoef-Jenkins and Chelsea D’Angelo in coach Woosnam’s backcourt rotation, with more additions to be announced soon.
