BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Former Florida Tech women’s basketball player Tereza Sedlakova has signed a professional contract with a new team and will be moving to Spain to join A.D. Cortegada.

The team is looking forward to adding Sedlakova’s in-and-out game after finishing 4-17 during the 2019-20 campaign.

The Pezinok, Slovakia native ranked second on the Wildcats’ roster with 6.0 rebounds per game in addition to averaging 6.0 points, 1.0 assist and 37.5% shooting while playing in 11 games.
“I am very excited to join the Cortegada team and play in Spain next season,” exclaimed Sedlakova. “It has been a dream of mine to play there at some point in my career because some of the best basketball players in the world are Spanish.
I am also looking forward to living in Vilagarcía because it is a small town right on the beach similar to Melbourne, which I really miss.
“I hope that together we can build a great and successful team at Cortegada and help each become the best versions of our ourselves. I look forward to the year full of adventures and I can wait to meet everyone in Vilagarcia.”
