The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras are happy to have secured two high quality players for their upcoming 2013 SEABL season, Carley Mijovic and Rachel Herrick.

18 year old Mijovic comes to the Swinburne Lady Cobras from Dandenong where she has enjoyed great local and national success, including representing Australia at the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championships, being awarded an AIS Scholarship in 2009 and being named WNBL Rookie of the Year in 2012. This year Mijovic will once again represent Australia in the Under 19 Girls team at the World Championships to be held in Czech Republic

Herrick has also had her share of successes, averaging 10.2 points and 8.6 rebounds playing for Adelaide Lightning in the current WNBL season. “I am really excited about coming to Kilsyth for this season” said Herrick recently. “I have heard great things about both Head Coach Peter Gay and the program, so I feel like it’s going to be a good fit for me. I think with the group that Pete has put together, it’s going to be a great season ahead for us”.

These comments are echoed by Mijovic who is “looking forward to all the new girls coming together as a team and having a really good season with great results”.  Having worked with Peter before in state teams, Mijovic commented that she loves having Peter as a coach and is excited about her move to Kilsyth.
The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras have officially commenced their 2013 preseason for their season opener on 17 March 2013.
