Penaluna Re-Signs With Melbourne Boomers


The Deakin Melbourne Boomers is pleased to announce the return of Elyse Penaluna for the 2016/17 WNBL season.

“I’m so excited to be back again with the Boomers Family for the coming WNBL season, theres’ so much energy and excitement with all the positive news around the club,” said Penaluna.

“I’m looking forward to this season with everything the Boomers have done off the court to make this club strong and united across all of Melbourne basketball, plus with our other returning players and new recruits it is shaping up as a very exciting season.”

“Most of all I’m so happy I’ll be out there again representing the best supporters in the league, it really is like a big family and the team loves playing at the State Basketball Centre in front of our fans,” added Penaluna.

Coach Guy Molloy is looking forward to having Elyse back on court, fighting fit and delivering quality basketball.

“Few WNBL players have suffered the adversity Elyse has. She is such a talented player, however, and has worked so hard to get her body a hundred percent right, that we feel she will play a lot of good basketball yet. At her peak, she is an outstanding scorer and rebounder who can dominate a WNBL game,” said Molloy.
