THE Bendigo Spirit has added to their roster with the signing of former Troy Trojans American college player Sarah McAppion.
As well as playing five years with the Trojans, where she was captain, McAppion has also spent the past two WNBL seasons playing with Spirit rival Canberra.
McAppion is a 25-year-old guard who will provide further back-up to Kelly Wilson and Belinda Snell.
“She played well at Troy University in Alabama, as well as being an AIS graduate. She is a multi-talented player who is looking for a breakout season in the WNBL,” Spirit coach Simon Pritchard said on Friday.
“She can defend as well as shoot from the three-point line. Her strength makes her versatile in guarding players taller than herself.”
McAppion said she was excited to be continuing her WNBL career with the Spirit.
“There’s a lot of excitement around what the Spirit is doing this year. There are so many top-shelf players in the squad… it’s going to be fantastic,” McAppion said.
