The Lady Cobras have re-signed ‘3-and-D’ specialist Rosie Moult for the 2018 SEABL season.
Moult made an unexpected return to the Lady Cobras last season, joining the team for the final nine games of 2017 after recovering from a ruptured achilles tendon suffered in late 2016. Despite playing limited minutes, Moult ranked second on the team in steals (1.2spg), with her defensive versatility helping the Lady Cobras finish with the league’s top defence for a second consecutive season.
“We are so pleased that Rosie has decided to play on in 2018,” Lady Cobras coach Sam Woosnam said.
“She made a surprise comeback during the 2017 season and showed glimpses of her former self, and both (assistant coach) Tony Smyth and I are really looking forward to working with Rosie in the pre-season and building her confidence back heading into 2018.”
Prior to suffering her season-ending achilles injury, Moult was enjoying a solid 2016 campaign, finishing second in the league in steals (1.7spg) and seventh in three-point makes (1.7 3PM), while ranking second on the Lady Cobras roster in blocked shots (15) and third in rebounding (6.4rpg). Her ability to guard multiple positions and stretch the floor on the offensive end has made the former Fresno State Bulldog and Melbourne Boomers forward one of Coach Woosnam’s most reliable players, with her value extending far beyond the box score.
“Rosie has always been what I call the “glue” of our team, especially on the defensive end,” Woosnam said.
“And now it’s time for her to take on more of a leadership role with the team and really make an impact once again in 2018.”
