The SBA are pleased to announce the signing of Amelia Todhunter for the 2019 Elite League season. Todhunter joins the Sabres fresh off her season with the Jayco Rangers in the WNBL Coach Andrew Potter was extremely happy with the signing. “Amelia brings with her extensive experience at the WNBL level to the Sabres and is another steady guiding hand for the group. Like Rachel Jarry she demonstrates great skills and leadership that will help the team and assist in the development of our younger players.”
Todhunter joins Tenaya Phillips, Ella Batish and Rachel Jarry on the floor in 2019 for the senior women. Now three weeks into the pre-season campaign, Andrew Potter commented, “Trainings have been very good but were taken to another level once Rachel Jarry started. She is a pro and everyone lifted their output as soon as she came on board.”The girls are currently involved in 2 sessions a week on court with another Saturday morning session dedicated to conditioning. We are where I hoped to be at this stage with the only set-back being a couple of minor injuries that have kept players off the floor.”
With the season kick-off 6 weeks away, things are certainly ramping up. The Basketball Victoria run and operated Elite League will be branded and named soon along with fixture announcements. The Southern Sabres will also be announcing key Men’s signings in the coming weeks.
