Gemma Kerr and Erica McMenamin both play milestone games at home against Albury Wodonga on Friday April 15. Gemma plays game 200 and Erica joins the SEABL 250 game club.

With the addition of Chantella Perera and Eva Afeaki over the past few weeks, the Swinburne Lady Cobras will have a great balance across all positions when their roster is finalised in the coming weeks. Swinburne Lady Cobras Head Coach Cheryl Chambers believes that with the 5 re-signings the squad is better placed than this time last year.

“In terms of where we were at this time last year we are certainly further down the track from a coaching point of view, with the girls having a greater understanding of what I expect from them”.

Chambers knows that the competition for the 2011 SEABL Season is going to be tough and is excited about the season ahead, “I’m pleased with the way training has been progressing and that all the girls have come back in excellent shape”.

“Hayley has been training with Dandenong’s WNBL side over the summer which has really furthered her development into a definite stopper, Gemma Kerr finished last Season in good shooting form and we will look to her again for score power; Brooke Nisi will also be valuable.

Chambers is also eager to see the further development of Jordyn O’Shea who had a great rookie season in the 2010 SEABL Season “I’m excited to see Jordie develop this year after her ability to play so well on so many of the premier point guards last year”

“Jordie also has the benefit of being able to gather great support from Erica McMenamin whose experience will be invaluable, Erica came back in terrific shape and is raring to go in Season 2011” Chambers concluded.

The Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras tip off their 2011 SEABL Campaign on Saturday 2 April against arch rivals the Knox Raiders before playing their home opener on Sunday 10 April against the Geelong Supercats.
