Peace’s sense of rejuvenation stems from two aspects. She has fully rehabilitated from the surgery on an injury that kept her out of the Africa Netball Championship in South Africa and enjoyed a good pre-season with a modified triathlon.

Peace Proscovia hopes to star this year

Peace’s sense of rejuvenation stems from two aspects. She has fully rehabilitated from the surgery on an injury that kept her out of the Africa Netball Championship in South Africa and enjoyed a good pre-season with a modified triathlon.

 

Peace Proscovia has had a remarkable netball career over the years —with 2017 her standout year.

Back then, the She Cranes captain was unanimously crowned the Most Valuable Player (MVP) during her spell with English club Loughborough Lightening in the Vitality Super League.

The Ugandan was so dominant in a season she also won the Gilbert Golden Shot of Year Award and earned a place in the All Star Team of The Year.

All this coincided with her impeccable run for country, where she inspired the She Cranes to the African title.

But, to Proscovia, all this, including her splendid maiden Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) season with Sunshine Coast Lightning last year, seems to be just a fraction of what she can achieve.

 

Best ever

"I am expecting the best year ever that I've had in this world and I'm really excited about 2020," Peace told sunshinecoastlightning.com.

"I learnt a lot last year and, as an individual, there are lots of things that I can improve on and go on to achieve."

Peace's sense of rejuvenation stems from two aspects. She has fully rehabilitated from the surgery on an injury that kept her out of the Africa Netball Championship in South Africa and enjoyed a good pre-season with a modified triathlon.

"The training yesterday was team bonding, which was exciting. It was awesome — getting the team together is something we've been looking forward to," she said.

Last season, Peace led her club's shooting tally providing a tall target under the post, with her impressive reach providing headache for opposition defenders.

Her combination with Stephanie Wood and Cara Koenen was impeccable and will provide the ideal platform for Sunshine Coast Lightning this season.

 

Peace's heir Nuba buoyant

A thousand miles away in the United Kingdom, Peace's heir to throne at Loughborough Lightning Mary Nuba hasn't disappointed either.

Nuba, 22, made her mark on the netball world in her opening season last year and is determined to script another successful campaign.

Just like Peace, Nuba claimed the Golden Shot Award and was crowned Most Valuable Player last season —achievements that prompted Loughborough Lightning to reward her with an improved lucrative contract.

Her coach Sara Bayman is delighted to have (Nuba (pictured left) back for pre-season.
