Coach Liam Culloty said that he is delighted to get the opportunity to play at the top level as it is the first time since 2005 that a women’s team from Kerry has competed in the Super League.

National League Preparation

Two years at national league has prepared the squad for the challenges ahead according to Culloty who acknowledges that the competition is fantastic at this level but he feels that they will hold their own with most teams.

Game More Aggressive Here

Jordan Chavis joins the side from the University of Missouri. The North Carolina native is a guard and stands at 5.10.

She says the game is more aggressive here but she is looking forward to getting the season going.
