In exciting signing news, the UC Capitals have recruited Alison Schwagmeyer-Belger for the remainder of the Cygnett WNBL season.

The respected guard joins the team after a stint in Serbia where she played six games and averaged 10.3 ppg.

Schwagmeyer-Belger played college basketball for the Charleston Southern Buccaneers and the Quincy Hawks, and has played in Germany, Spain, Romania and Australia.

Taking the WNBL by storm from 2017 to 2021, the guard played for Perth Lynx and the Sydney Flames and says she’s excited to start this new chapter.

“I knew I wanted that team to be in Australia so when the call from the Caps came it was a blessing and exactly what I was looking for,” she said.
