We are happy to announce that our very own Kieran Farrell will be heading to St Ambrose University in Iowa, USA next season! It has long been Kieran’s dream to keep working on his craft while getting an education in America and we would like to congratulate him on making this come true.
“Super happy for Kieran getting a chance fulfil his dream of playing in the States. He’s improved so much since joining us due to his work ethic and the way he always wants feedback. Excited to follow his journey as a bee.” – Coach Adam Davies
Kieran had a brilliant Junior career and developed his basketball with the Richmond Knights before attending Canterbury Academy in 2018. In his three years with us he has developed tremendously both on and off the court.
“I’m so excited to be starting this new chapter in my basketball life. It’s been a dream of mine to play in the US at the collegiate level and now I’ve achieved that goal. Massive thanks to everyone who has helped me on this journey and to all the coaches along the way who have helped prepare me for this moment. I’m really excited to hit ground running and show the other side of the world what I can do. #AlwaysACrusader.” – Kieran Farrell
Kieran will be playing under Coach Ray as he becomes a “Fighting Bee” competing in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference in the NAIA.
