2021 COACHES APPOINTED

CONGRATULATIONS Chloe Mullaney (Women) and Rex Nottage (Men), who have been appointed to coach the Newcastle Hunters senior representative teams in 2021.

A former WNBL player and five-time NSW junior representative as a player, Chloe will be in charge of the senior women’s team for the first time after enjoying success coaching Newcastle junior representative teams in recent years. Chloe coached Newcastle’s Under-18 women’s team to victory at the 2019 NSW Championships and was an assistant to Mark Gledson when the Hunters senior women won the 2016 Waratah Basketball League championship.

“I’m really excited to be back involved in the senior women’s program and can’t wait to start getting ready for the 2021 season,” Chloe said.

“We have so much talent in Newcastle with female basketballers and it’s super exciting to be a part of it and what’s to come with women’s basketball here.

“I know we’ll have a young, enthusiastic group and that’s all I need, and we’ll build from there.”

Rex will return for his second season in charge after guiding the Hunters men’s team to a 4-1 record this season before Newcastle Basketball’s decision to withdraw from the Waratah Basketball League under advice from the NSW Government.

“The 2020 season was very stop-start and frustrating and it was disappointing to have to withdraw from the competition, although that decision was understandable under the circumstances,” Rex said.

“In saying that, on the court we were achieving some positive results and starting to come together as a group and we were confident of giving the title a shake had we stayed and played on.

“With all that in mind, there’s a sense of unfinished business heading into 2021 and I’m looking forward to being a part of that and seeing how far we can go with this team.”
