BOYD RETURNS FOR NBL1 CAMPAIGN
NUNAWADING BASKETBALL | The Nunawading ‘Burwood One’ Spectres continue to progress towards the inaugural NBL1 season, confirming today that dynamic guard Tessa Boyd has signed on for 2019.
Boyd returns for her third year in the Spectres senior team, having graduated through the Nunawading Basketball pathway. Adding to her athletic experience, Boyd was on the Western Bulldogs AFLW playing list this year but will switch her focus back to basketball as the NBL1 season approaches.
“I’m super excited to be on board again and working under Flynnie for another year,” Boyd said on signing.
“The personnel we have added this year bring great strengths and experience to our team, I’m very excited to work alongside such great athletes and people.”
Spectres Head Coach Paul Flynn equally excited to have Boyd return for another campaign at Nunawading as the program moves into a new era with NBL1.
“It’s great to have Tess back on board and I’m excited to her growth and development come to fruition on court this season.”
“Tess was limited in playing opportunity last year but her focus and determination to invest time into her own game never wavered. She approaches the game and her role with an incredibly high level of professionalism and I’m looking forward to that paying dividends for her.”
“We welcome Tess back into the group on the back of her AFLW campaign with the Bulldogs, and as a team we’re keen to learn from her experiences in that environment and explore what we can adapt into our NBL1 season.”
Boyd joins Izzy Chilcott, Rachel Antoniadou, Chelsea D’Angelo, Kiera Rowe, Rebecca Pizzey and Kathleen Scheer as confirmed players for the Nunawading ‘Burwood One’ Spectres women, with further signings to be confirmed shortly.
Due to Bulldogs commitments Boyd was unavailable for the Spectres first preseason hit out against Eltham last week, a 79-59 win for Nunawading. Izzy Chilcott topped the scoring for the Spectres with 23 points, with Rebecca Pizzey adding 15 points also.
