    Default Shelby Cheslek Movin On

    Congratulations to Shelby Cheslek who has signed to play with BAXI Ferrol located in Ferrol, Spain on the North West tip of the country.

    Here is a rough translation of the Spanish Press Release:

    The BAXI Ferrol card to the American pivot Shelby Cheslek. She is 25 years old, measures 1.95 and was formed at the University of Gonzaga.

    The American pivot Shelby Cheslek will play next season in the ranks of the BAXI Ferrol after the agreement reached with the club Ferrolano. The 25-year-old and 1.95-metre-tall player was trained at the University of Gonzaga, where she demonstrated a great capacity in the rebound, with more than eight average catches per game, while scoring almost ten points per match. Those good numbers led her to be invited by the Phoenix Mercury to participate in their 2016 summer camp. Outside the United States, Shelby played in the ranks of Dafni Agiou, Greece, South West Pirates, Australia, and the last season in the Hungarian League in the Pinkk Pecsi, where she averaged nine points and eight rebounds.

    In coach of the BAXI Ferrol, Carles Martínez, comments on the new player of the team that "Shelby is a large and mobile interior capable of running the track and with good interior movements. I'm sure it's going to help us a lot in rebound and defensive intimidation. We are very happy to be able to count on her this season. "

    With the addition of Shelby Cheslek, there are nine players with whom the team Ferrolano for next season, after the renovations of Patri Cabrera, Marina Delgado, Ani Calvo, Natalia Rodríguez and Carmen Fernandez, plus the arrivals of the Swede Elin Gustavsson, the Dutch Chatilla Van Grinsven and the American Amarah Coleman and Shelby Cheslek.
