Cat Remmos becomes a Seahawk
EX-GEELONG AFL Women’s player Carly Remmos has relocated to Queensland ahead of the National Basketball League (NBL)1 season, after signing on with North Gold Coast Seahawks. The talented dual sportsperson came from a basketball background as a junior, and played half a season with Geelong Falcons before being drafted by the Cats.
A former Geelong Supercats talent in the NBL South in 2021 juggling both commitment, Remmos had a couple of seasons of both sports interrupted due to Covid, with just the two games for the Falcons in 2020. It was enough for the Cats to be tempted to add her to their AFL Women’s list, which they did with Pick 39 in the 2020 AFLW Draft.
Managing seven games with the Supercats in the 2021 NBL1 South season, Remmos also played two AFL Women’s games. The 173cm player did not add to her two games in 2022 and was subsequently delisted but has now opted to focus on her basketball career. With her family living on the Gold Coast, it was an easy choice for the 20-year-old to move north.
“It’s been awesome getting back to playing basketball,” Remmos said.
“I’ve missed the technical part of the game so it’s great to get back to playing at a high level. The girls are all amazing and I can’t wait to start the season with them all”.
North Gold Coast Seahawks coach Brad Kann said he was looking forward to having the talented and athletic Remmos on his roster in 2023.
“Carly brings athleticism and a high level of competitiveness,” he said. “Which will allow us to set the tone at the defensive end of the floor”.
In her most recent season with the Supercats, Remmos only averaged five minutes on court but should see much more action this season focusing fully on her basketball.
