FIRE SIGN YOUNG TALENT MORGAN YAEGER

Young talent Morgan Yaegar joins the JCU Townsville Fire after a break-out 21/22 season with the Sydney University Flames. Yaegar adds to the already staggering level of international experience on the roster with her impressive career at University of Oregon in which her senior season took them to the Final 4 in the NCAA tournament.

Yaegar is thrilled to join the Fire:

“I couldn’t be more excited and honoured that I’m signing with Townsville for my first official WNBL contract. I’m so thankful for the opportunity and can’t wait to get up there and get to work with my coaches and teammates.”

Currently dominating the NBL1 Central for the Southern Tigers, Yaegar looks to continue her momentum in the WNBL and be a great asset for the Fire on both ends of the court.

Head coach Shannon Seebohm on his latest signing: ‘Morgan is going to be a great addition to our program. She possesses a unique skill set and will be able to play both the point guard and shooting guard positions for us. She’s an extremely hard worker and someone who will suit our style of play with her ability to shoot at a high level as well as create off the dribble for her teammates. She’s an exciting prospect who is ready for a big season here in Townsville.’

Yaegar joins already signed Lauren Nicholson, Zitina Aokuso, Stephanie Reid, Lara McSpadden, Courtney Woods, Karlie Samuelson and Mikaela Ruef.
