The Team Solent Kestrels have lost just one game so far this season powered by the expertise of Geena Gomez.
Born in California, Gomez arrived at Solent this year and has made an influential impact on the Team Solent Kestrels.
Basketball is one of the most popular sports in America, with such passion and experience of the game, Gomez has gifted Solent with a new level of knowledge of the game as well as encouragement for her teammates.
Described by her coach CJ Lee as a ‘class act’, Geena was named as the National Basketball League’s Division One player of the week.
Lee was full of praise for the American.
“She’s played at a really good level in the States for four years which really prepares you for play at the highest level.
Coming to the UK where basketball isn’t as high as some other European countries, she really stands out.”
Despite her dominance so far, Gomez admitted she couldn’t have reached the levels she has without her teammates.
“There’s great girls on the team and we have a really talented group. I think we can beat anyone honestly as long as we continue to stay together.”
