THE Selkirk Ballarat Rush have made another addition to the line up for the forthcoming season with the signing of guard Chanise Jenkins.

The De Paul University grad played the last two European seasons in Switzerland and also won gold with US team at the 2015 World University Games.

“I am really looking forward to coming to Ballarat,” Jenkins said. “I got a chance to speak with coach Eric Hayes, and his insight on the team and his expectations for the season is what got me really fired up.”

“I am extremely grateful of this opportunity… and I am looking forward to meeting the team, coaches, and everyone associated with the organization. The goal is to win a championship, and I can’t wait to get started in that pursuit.”

During her final College season Jenkins averaged 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 5 assists and 1.6 steals a game.

Rush Head Coach Eric Hayes said Jenkins would complement the team’s 2019 season line up that also includes Joy Burke, Claire Constable and Claire Blower.

“We are very excited to welcome Chanise to the Rush program for 2019,” Hayes said.

“Chanise is a very skilled point guard that will bring a lot to our program, she can score, facilitate others to score, defend, has great leadership skills and a super work ethic.”
