22 year old, Chelsea Apacible, has re-signed for the 2022 season.
The fast, Philippine point guard, burst onto the NBL1 scene in 2021. Known for her quick transition play, on-ball defense and team play, Chelsea will be looking to continue her development into season 2022.
After a season high 10 points vs Centrals, Chelsea’s confidence grew throughout the season and she was a solid option off the bench in the 2nd half of the season.
Apacible was both reflective on 2021, but also focused for this year:
“We had a great run last season, but I’m coming into the 2022 season hungrier than ever, and ready to put in the hard work to help my team do even better.”
Her chemistry with Ally Wilson and Alek Akuen strengthened throughout the season, as the three bonded closely on and off court. The team culture and chemistry is really important to success and it’s something that Apacible enhances in the playing group.
Coach McNamara said:
“Chelsea is an emerging young player who brings enormous energy and competitiveness to the team. She handles the ball well and works hard on developing her game and is totally committed to team success”.
