Thrilled with the way she’s playing basketball, New Haven High School graduate Kathleen Scheer is looking to lift her Hobart Lady Chargers in the South East Australian Basketball League playoffs.

“I played the best basketball I have played in years,” Kathleen said about her two-game surge which earned the Duke University graduate the SEABL women’s player of the week for Round 20.

“I averaged 32 points and 10 boards for the weekend,” Scheer said.

Hobart won at Nunawading Friday night, 83-70 (very early Friday morning our time). Scheer said it was a must-win game for Hobart.

“It’s a lot of pressure, but I believe that’s why you play the game,” Scheer said.

Kathleen was up to the pressure, recording a double-double with 23 points, 11 rebounds, five blocked shots and one assist. She hit four of eight three-point attempts.

Next action for the Lady Chargers, currently on a four-game winning streak, will be in the South Division playoffs.

Advancing to WNBL

Averaging 19.4 points and 8.7 rebounds per game while achieving high shooting percentages (49.6 percent from two-point range and 40.9 percent from beyond the three-point arc), Kathleen has received attention from Australia’s top circuit, the Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL).

She already has signed a contract to play next season (starting in September) with the Brydens Sydney Uni Flames.

“I am very excited about this opportunity,” Kathleen said. “The WNBL is the highest women’s league in Australia and so it’s definitely something I am looking forward to being a part of. It’s a massive city and very busy (I went on holiday there), but I think I will be able to handle it. My roommate from the last WNBL team I played on (Bendigo) is actually going to be my teammate in Sydney as well, so I am really looking forward to that. I can’t wait to play at that level against some of the best players in Australia.”

Round 20

“We had to win the first game on Saturday against Ballarat, or we would have had no chance in finals,” Scheer said. “We beat them and played awesome basketball.”

Kathleen posted a double-double with 38 points and 14 rebounds to go with one assist as the Lady Chargers won the game, 81-71. She did not leave the floor, playing all four quarters. Scheer was especially on fire from beyond the three-point arc, hitting three of her six attempts.

But that wasn’t it for the weekend.

“On Sunday we followed that up with a massive win over Dandedong,” Scheer said.

Scheer again did not exit the court as Hobart won, 90-67. She netted 27 points with six rebounds, four assists and one blocked shot in the game.

Scheer hit five of her six attempts from beyond the three-point arc in the victory.

Hello, Tasmania!

This marked Kathleen’s second Australian adventure as she had signed last year with the Bendigo Spirit, but left that team due to injury.

That was the same program where her cousin, Luke Meyer, stood out in two seasons with the Bendigo Braves of the SEABL.

She sat out last season, but returned to sign with the Lady Chargers in Hobart, Tasmania.

“It’s been an amazing ride playing in Hobart the last six months,” Scheer said. “I absolutely love this place. It’s got a small-town feel to it even though it’s pretty massive in my eyes. The people here are so friendly and laid back.”

Hobart is the state capital of Tasmania and the metropolitan area is home for over 216,000 people.

“The league that I am currently playing in, the SEABL, is very competitive and challenging,” Scheer said about the league. “Being in Tassie, we have to travel to the mainland a lot to play teams as Tassie only has one other team. We play each team twice, one away and one at our place. Our crowds are probably one of the best if not the best in the whole league. We have great fans!”

Even though she loves playing in Hobart, she is very appreciative of all of the support from back home in this area.

“I want to thank everyone back home for all the support the last several years,” Scheer said. “All the kind words and encouragement mean more to me then you know. It can be tough being away from home, especially when you are a small-town girl, but it’s something I really want to do for me right now and just knowing that people support that means the absolute world to me.”

Adversity

Playing on the other side of the world isn’t a simple thing. So when injuries happen, things get even harder.

Scheer suffered a serious injury April 20 in Brisbane. While Hobart won that game, 89-66, Scheer was knocked out of the contest after playing just 7:14, breaking her collarbone.

“We were playing away, and I ran after a ball and into one of the other team’s players,” Scheer said. “She hit me just right. It was kind of a freak accident really. After talking to doctors and the club, they decided that I would stay, rehab, and try to be back for the end of the season (finals). I came back after the longest eight weeks of my life and started playing.”

Scheer returned to the court June 21 with 12 points and nine rebounds in a 93-82 win over Albury Wodonga in 17:24 of action.

She netted 20 points in the next contest against Knox and has been improving each game down the stretch, with her three best scoring games coming in Rounds 19 and 20.
