The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras are happy to announce the signing of Ellie Junod for their 2013 season. Ellie comes to the Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras from the Sydney Uni Flames where she has been playing in the WNBL.
The 19 year old forward has enjoyed success with Bankstown where she was named the 2012 Under 21 Youth Player of the Year and named in the Waratah All Stars Side.

Ellie said that she’s thrilled to be about joining the Swinburne Lady Cobras and is “feeling really good about the move, if not a tad nervous and excited at the same time. I am looking forward to the new experience and a new level of basketball” she said, it will be something different but I’m ready for the challenge.”

Head Coach of the Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras Peter Gay stated that he is “very excited about Ellie joining the team as she has had an exceptional junior career in NSW. Ellie will continue her development in 2013 and provide some extra height and athleticism coming off the bench.”  

Recently Ellie had the opportunity to come to Melbourne and visit Kilsyth Basketball. After viewing the facilities Ellie noted the “great set up and good vibe” that the Club has, and believes that this along with her strong determination is sure to set her up for a great 2013 SEABL season.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras officially commence their preseason in mid-January 2013 for their season opener on 17 March 2013.
