NUNAWADING BASKETBALL | The Nunawading ‘Burwood One’ Spectres are excited to announce that Tessa Boyd has re-signed ahead of the 2018 South East Australian Basketball League season.
Boyd made her SEABL debut in Nunawading’s 2017 ‘Home Opener’ before going on to appear in 20 games for the Spectres across the course of the season. Her best outing coming against the now champion Geelong Supercats where she logged 8 points and 3 rebounds.
“I’m looking forward to playing and training alongside players like Hanna Zavecz,” Boyd said. “It’s such a great opportunity to have her in the team and learn from her experience.”
“I’m excited to keep working with on my game with Flynnie, as I have over the past two years.”
Boyd has moved into the Spectres senior team following strong performances with the programs youth league side where she played under now SEABL Head Coach Paul Flynn.
“We’re really excited with Tessa’s development, particularly over the last 12 months,” Flynn said. “She applies herself with incredible focus and I’m looking forward to the opportunities she can create for herself moving into her second season with the senior team.”
“Tess is another graduate of our Junior Spectres Program and we’re thrilled to see her stepping up and playing an important role at SEABL level.”
“She can shoot the ball a variety of ways and has been working hard at being able to do so consistently against elite level defenders. She’s definitely worked her way into a position where opponents need to scout her or she’ll hurt them on the scoreboard.”
Boyd becomes the sixth signing for the Spectres women’s side, joining Izzy Chilcott, Hanna Zavecz, Jacqui Trotto, Lucy Cochrane and Sherry Glennie on the roster. The Spectres have begun individual workouts ahead of official preseason.
