After moving to the Magic last season, silky-smooth shooter Ameliaranne Ekenasio will suit up better-prepped for a second stint in 2023. Returning to the fray following the birth of her second child, Ekenasio had a monitored participation last season and will add a more dynamic presence in 2023. With a spectacular high-arching shot, Ekenasio is a naturally talented all-round athlete who excels from the goal attack position. Ekenasio’s consistency in all facets of play took her game to new levels during a defining 2019 season. A fine mover and ball handler, Ekenasio is a confident long-range shooter who put the icing on a memorable year as a key cog in the Silver Ferns 2019 World Cup-winning triumph. She was also part of the World Series-winning FAST5 Ferns team in 2018 and embellished her leadership credentials when assuming the Silver Ferns captaincy in 2020.
