"I am thrilled to have signed again with Kilsyth to coach in 2017,” Woosnam said.

“It will be my fourth year coaching this team and the improvements we have made in a lot of areas is very pleasing.”

“Kilsyth is a great club to be involved with and have been very supportive of myself and the girls.”

Woosnam has established herself as one of the SEABL’s top coaches during her three-year tenure with Kilsyth, where she has turned the Lady Cobras into perennial title contenders while playing an exciting, up-tempo brand of basketball. Following a Semi Final exit in her debut season with Kilsyth in 2014, Woosnam has since spearheaded a two-year dominance of the South Conference which has seen the Lady Cobras claim back-to-back Conference championships.

The former WNBL star was rewarded for her team’s outstanding 2016 season, earning SEABL Women’s Coach of the Year honours after leading Kilsyth to a league-best 19-2 regular season record. The Lady Cobras impressive record was highlighted by a perfect 10-0 mark at home, with Woosnam and co. adding two more home victories during the playoffs before falling to Dandenong in the SEABL title game for the second straight year.

Despite her individual accolades and the Lady Cobras impressive three year run, Woosnam has one thing in her mind for the year ahead: winning a national championship. And though player signings have been kept under wraps to date, Woosnam has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to secure as much of last season’s team as possible for the year ahead.

“After falling short in the championship game for the past two seasons, getting back there and going one step further is our goal right now,” Woosnam added. 

“We have been working at securing our core group and adding some exciting players to make us much tougher next season, and I know last year’s core feel they have unfinished business.”

“We look forward to being an exciting team to watch again in 2017.”
