SIGNING | Lightbody is back for another year!
We are delighted to announce that Rona Lightbody has re-signed for Lady Rocks Basketball for season 2021/22.
Rona is returning to the Cumbernauld side once again, a season in which we look to secure our third successive Scottish Basketball Championship title and a year where Lady Rocks will look to defend their League and Scottish Cup titles!
Prior to the the covid-19 pandemic bringing about an abrupt close to the 2019/20 season, Rona was frequently putting in impressive performances for the Cumbernauld side, culminating in a MVP performance at the 2020 Scottish Cup Final, a match in which Lady Rocks defeated City of Edinburgh Kool Kats to reclaim the Scottish Cup.
Everyone at Lady Rocks Basketball is looking forward to seeing Rona, and her teammates, back in action for season 2021/22!
"I'm really looking forward to getting back on court with the girls. The team has a great blend of talented youngsters and more experienced players which I think is a formidable combination. It's going to be a weekly battle to get a spot on the team sheet and that's a fun environment to be involved with."
"I think we will all appreciate the season that bit more after the past 18months. Basketball is a destress for me and to have that focus back after such a challenging year will be the mental reset we have all missed. Whether playing, coaching, officiating, supporting or a blend of all of these! St Maurice's has been too quiet for too long." - Rona Lightbody
