Sharks’ superstar locked and loaded for NBL1 East 24!

The Sutherland Sharks are thrilled to announce the re-signing of superstar WNBL guard and local junior Lauren Nicholson for the 2024 NBL1 season.

Currently playing the WNBL with the Sydney Flames and averaging 16.5 points per game and 37.5 % from 3-point range, Nicholson will return to the Black and Blue for season number three in the NBL1 East and is the key piece in the Sharks women’s team quest for championship glory.

Sharks General Manager Adrian Dark said “Every year when Lauren plays for our club it’s a privilege. She is a world class athlete, club member and person. I’m thrilled that she has once again chosen to play the NBL1 for us. Lauren is without a doubt one of the greatest basketballers to come out of Sutherland Basketball and her connection with our community is extremely special and we are extremely lucky to have someone like Lauren be a part of our club.”

Lauren will continue to push for a WNBL finals berth with the Sydney Flames and will join the Sharks NBL1 side at the completion of the season.
