The Boomers will further celebrate O’Hea’s 250th milestone when she will receive WNBL Life Membership in recognition of her decorated career in the competition.

While O’Hea chalked up her 250th WNBL game late in the regular season, Boomers supporters will now be given the opportunity to acknowledge their captains’ achievement at home.

O’Hea is the 58th life member of the league and has averaged 10.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists in her 12th WNBL season.

While the 31-year-old is proud to have received a life membership, her primary focus remains on doing what she can to help the Boomers start their finals campaign on a high note against the Lightning.

The two-time WNBL champion captained the Boomers to last season’s WNBL Grand Final and is hungrier than ever to chase WNBL championship number three.

“As a team we have worked hard to make the finals and we are all determined to go one better than last season. I can’t wait to step on court with my teammates this weekend,” O’Hea said.
