With the women’s side shaping up to be a championship contender, we are proud to announce the signing of Lauren Jansen, who is back for another season for the SmartSkill Seahawks Women’s QSL team.
In 2020, Jansen averaged a team high in assists (3.27pg) and rebounds (9.82pg) as well being the second leading scorer with 12.55ppg and eventually took out dual MVP honours with Aimee Durbidge.
“It was never a question to whether I was going to play again, I’ve got a wedding to be fit for” laughed Jansen.
“In all seriousness, I just love playing the game and with Brad Kann as our Head Coach, and with the squad he is assembling, I think it’s going to be a positive year for the group”
“Last season was challenging – with the uncertainty of whether the season would go ahead, and with it being a condensed season, made it tough to get ready for” said Jansen.
Head Coach of the SmartSkill Seahawks Women’s team, Brad Kann, knew Jansen would be a key factor in any squad he assembled.
“Loz just has a knack for getting her hands on the basketball” said Kann
“Her activity at both the defensive and offensive end is incredibly impressive and will go a long way to the team playing finals this season”
“I thought last season Lauren was one of the main reasons the group saw some success, through her hard-working nature and team first mentality”
“Just her experience alone will be a huge factor”
