KRISTI Harrower says she is still weighing-up whether to continue her WNBL career.
The Bendigo Bank Spirit champion has been undecided since the club won its first championship in March.
But with the 2013-14 basketball season fast approaching, Harrower knows she’ll have to come up with an answer soon.
“They’re waiting on me to make a decision and I’m still finding it quite hard,” Harrower said.
“Hopefully, in the next week or two I’ll sit down with my husband and make a decision.”
If the 38-year-old decides to play on the Spirit will have to find more money for her contract.
“Because we’ve had to recruit around the fact of believing we wouldn’t have her the budget is pretty much done and dusted,” coach Bernie Harrower said.
“But we’ve got some good people on our board. Hopefully, if she turns around and says ‘yes, I want to play’, they will be able to come up with some cash for her to continue her career.”
Harrower has been keeping herself fit during the off-season and recently started doing court work.
“On Tuesday some of the Spirit girls played in a practice match against the Lady Braves, and I did that and my Achilles feel really good,” Harrower said.
“It’s looking positive. It’s just a matter of making that decision and going with it, I suppose.
“I do want to play. I think we have such a great team that we could go back-to-back.”
The Spirit could hold its first training session of the pre-season Saturday week, if the Bendigo Lady Braves and Knox’s women’s teams both earn the week off in SEABL finals.
Elyse Penaluna is the club’s major injury concern after Gabe Richards’ successful comeback for Knox after suffering plantar fasciitis.
Bendigo Spirit’s season tips-off with a grand final re-match in Townsville on Friday, October 4.
