The Canberra Caps Academy have never made the playoffs in the six-year history of their club but WNBL rising star Keely Froling is determined to turn around their fortunes in 2018.

Back for her fifth SEABL season, Froling was paired with WNBL team mate from the UC Capitals, Kate Gaze, and the two of them led the Caps Academy to their best ever start this season with three victories from their first four games.

An ACL injury to Gaze has cut her 2018 campaign short though and Froling knows she will now need to shoulder more of the load on court but she is willing to take the challenge.

“We’ve made massive improvements from last year,” she said.

“We want to make a statement that when you play SEABL, you used to come into Canberra and get a win but that’s not what we want to be. We want everyone to fear coming to Canberra and fear playing us.”

Hear the full interview below with Froling which also covers her recent exploits with the Australian 3×3 team as well as her course at the University of Canberra.
