Superstar centre Lauren Scherf has re-signed with the Kilsyth Cobras for the 2022 NBL1 season.


Scherf enjoyed a standout 2021 campaign with the Cobras, leading the team in scoring (18.8ppg), rebounds (12.6rpg) and blocked shots (1.8bpg), while ranking second in assists (3.2apg). The Cobras Team MVP’s gaudy numbers ranked amongst the league’s best, placing in the NBL1’s top five for rebounding and shot blocking. A model of consistency, Scherf recorded a double-double in all 13 regular season games, and she was at her best over the final month of the season as she upped her numbers to 23 points, 14.5 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per contest.

Scherf – an Australian Opals squad member – carried forward her impressive play into WNBL season, where she’s enjoyed a career year with the Perth Lynx. The 6’5 centre led the Lynx in rebounds (10.6rpg) and blocks (1.0bpg), and placed fourth in scoring (12.3ppg), helping lead Perth to a WNBL grand final berth, with the finals tipping-off against the Melbourne Boomers on April 2.


Whilst she was dominant on the interior, Scherf showed she is equally adept from the perimeter, with her ever improving three-point shooting and elite frontcourt passing on full display over the past 12 months with the Cobras and Lynx. Cobras head coach, Hannah Lowe, is thrilled to witness that continued growth first hand once again, with her star centre set to be the focal point of a young, exciting Kilsyth team in 2022.


“Lauren joins us after a career season with the Perth Lynx,” Lowe said.


“She continues to expand her versatility on both the offensive and defensive end and I am excited to see her continue to do that with the Cobras this year.”
