Standish goes west


OK, it’s official. Kayla Standish has joined Alice Kunek and Olivia Thompson in a revamped Perth Lynx frontcourt for what surely is shaping as a landmark 2017-18 WNBL season.

Of course, readers here knew a while ago, as evidenced below.

But now it’s official, with the veteran of three seasons at Townsville Fire - and one at Adelaide Lightning thrown in for good measure - heading west.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to play for the Lynx,” she said today.

“I have enjoyed watching the Lynx program grow over the last few years that I have been in Australia.

“As a personal goal, I hope to bring a positive impact to the club, both on and off the court.”

With Sami Whitcomb and Toni Edmondson already returning, an American point guard to come, don’t be counting the Lynx out of the running anytime soon!

Standish, 27 and 188cm, has averaged 11.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game across a four-year career which included two Grand Finals with the Fire.  

IN other WNBL news, Kate Gaze is back at Canberra Capitals with the club also working hard to try and secure playmaker Natalie Hurst (pictured).

The WNBL Grand Final MVP in 2008-09 with the Caps, Hurst, 34 and a 163cm livewire, has most recently been playing with Hatay in Turkey.

Townsville has secured LA Sparks guard Sydney Wiese, 21 and a 183cm guard rated highly for her incredible shooting ability.

“We’re thrilled to have Sydney joining our club and are excited by what she has to offer,” Fire coach Claudia Brassard said.

“With such a dominant frontcourt, it’s important we have guards who can spread the floor and hurt teams if they leave us alone on the perimeter.”
