”Im really excited about the opportunity to be involved with the Flames in the upcoming season,” Lowe said.

”Katrina has put together a really impressive roster and I can’t wait to get up there and get to work.

”The step into WNBL assistant coach is one I have been working towards, and working in a staff lead by Katrina Hibbert was an opportunity too good to pass up.”

Garlepp is also relishing the chance to work alongside Brydens Sydney Uni Flames’ talented roster.

Not only does the roster have high character and ability, but being able to work alongside Katrina and Hannah is something that I am very much looking forward to,” he said.

Coach Hibbert could not speak more highly of the pair.

”Hannah joins us from Victoria where we have both coached together on several teams. She and I have a great working relationship and respect for each other, and she also brings a wide array of experience from WNBL, State and College experience.,” Hibbert said.

”Tom is a familiar name in NSW Basketball and Sydney so I’m excited to have him join us this season. He has not only an experienced playing background but brings great knowledge of the game from his coaching experiences.  He’s going to be a great asset to our coaching staff.”
