Bendigo's Kristi Harrower is about to make the next step in her career.
The multiple Olympic medallist and WNBL Championship player has been announced as the Melbourne Tigers senior women's NBL1 coach.
Harrower takes over the role from Mark Wright, who stepped down mid-season because of personal and business pressures.
"When Melbourne Tigers called me about the coaching position, I saw it as a great opportunity to kick start my coaching career which is something I have always wanted to do," Harrower told the NBL1.
In full-circle style, Harrower started her journey to professional level as a junior with the Tigers.
"To be able to go back to the club that has given me so many opportunities as a junior and senior player is an opportunity for me to give back to this great family club that has always meant a lot to me."
Tigers play Knox Raiders this weekend in the NBL1.
Bendigo golfer Lucas Herbert carded two-under par in the first round of the European Tour event Made in Denmark.
Herbert finished with four birdies and two bogeys to finish at two-under in T31, three shots of the lead.
Alejandro Caizares, Edoardo Molinari, Paul Waring, Tom Murray and Matthew Southgate are currently on top of the leaderboard at five-under par.
Herbert will tee up in round two tonight at 9.10 pm AEST alongside Darren Fichardt (RSA) and Ashun Wu (CHN).
Bendigo Fighting Miners will play at home this Saturday following two weeks on the road.
Miners will go into the home turf match with the Shepparton Bulls on the back of a disappointing 3-71 loss last weekend in round four to the Melton Warriors.
The Bulls are on top of Rugby Victoria's Championship division ladder with a 3-1 record, the only game the team dropped was in round one when they were defeated by the Maroondah Griffins by four points.
Miners have a 2-2 record and will be eager to improve on last weekend's loss by jumping up a few spots on the ladder from the team's current position in fifth.
Fighting Miners host the Shepparton Bulls at Epsom Huntly Recreation Reserve on Saturday, game at 3pm.
