Rising star Georgia Booth has re-signed with the Cobras for a third NBL1 season.


Booth was a strong contributor during her sophomore campaign, averaging 8.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game during the 2022 NBL1 season. Possessing toughness and physicality well beyond her years, Booth gave the Cobras an instant spark off the bench; with the super sub establishing herself as one of the league’s top sixth women. The SEBC Saints junior was a pest on the defensive end, ranking second on the team in steals despite playing just over 20 minutes per contest, and had a knack for her raising her play against the league’s top teams. 


Three of Booth’s top four scoring performances came against playoff teams, including a season-high 20 points against Geelong in Round 11 – a mark she matched three weeks later on the road against the Casey Cavaliers. Booth’s impressive performance in big games was not limited to the NBL1 either; she was a key contributor on the Victorian U20 Women’s team, helping lead the group to a 2022 national championship. 


Boasting a winning pedigree and veteran toughness at just 20 years of age, all signs are pointing towards a breakout season for Booth in 2023, with Cobra head coach Hannah Lowe echoing that sentiment.


“Georgia has been putting in work since the NBL1 season concluded and is primed to make her mark at this level again in 2023,” Lowe said.


“Georgia have a few break out performances in 2022 and building on that in 2023 looks to be a certainty.”
