Proscovia ready to build on lessons
NETBALL: Sunshine Coast Lightning goal shooter Peace Proscovia said she learned plenty from her maiden season in Super Netball and is eager for a bigger and better campaign on court this year.
The 30-year-old Ugandan talent was a star attacking force for the Lightning, providing plenty of spark under the hoop while sharing shooting duties with Cara Koenen.
While the Sippy Downs-based outfit fell in the decider, Proscovia savoured the season and her first year in the Australian competition.
“2019 was an amazing year despite the outcome,” she said.
“We learnt lessons and that helps us as a team to build and I myself as an individual, reflecting back I’ve noticed there are lots of things that I can achieve this year. I learnt lots of things last year.”
The Lightning enjoyed their first full training session of the year yesterday, with all players bar Karla Pretorius and Phumza Maweni, who are in England participating in the The Vitality Nations Cup.
“It was awesome, getting the team together is something that we’ve been looking forward to,” Proscovia said.
“We are really excited to be back together and that training was kind of team bonding which is really exciting.”
Proscovia had high hopes for the year ahead. “I’m expecting the best year ever that I’ve had in this world and I’m really excited for 2020.”
