    It is with great excitement that the Bethanie Stirling Senators are able to announce the return of Cody Ellis for the 2016 SBL season.  

     

    Cody Ellis will return for his 3rd SBL season with the Senators, having already spent his entire junior days with the club.  This season he will join the team after his commitment is complete with the Illawarra Hawks.  

     

    Head Coach of the Hawks, Rob Beveridge says about Ellis, “It has been great to have watched Cody grow & this opportunity will once again be another step further in his development.”

     

    Over the last 2 seasons, Ellis’ statistics increased in points, rebounds & assists and he will once again look to develop his game.  Last season Ellis averaged 25 points and just over 9 rebounds a game.  

     

    Mike Ellis, Cody’s father & coach is also excited to have Cody join the team.  “Right now I know Cody is focused on the NBL season & helping the Hawks, but I look forward to when he is able to join the boys and be a part of what is happening with the Senators.”  

     

    Cody Ellis will join the team at the conclusion of the Illawarra Hawks season. Currently, the Hawks are equal second with the Perth Wildcats.  Both teams will battle it out in the Perth Arena on Thursday night!
