Earmarked for a bright future, rising young defender Holly Fowler was forced out of the entire 2017 season with a serious knee.
Fowler had previously made an impressive rise through the
ranks as a highly successful captain of the Mount Albert Grammar School. She also captained the New Zealand Secondary Schools team. She made a smooth transition to the professional ranks with an impressive debut season for the Mystics in 2016. Predominately a goal defence/wing defence, Fowler’s potential was recognised when named the Aspiring Silver Fern at the 2016 NZ Netball Awards.
