Towering schoolgirl shooter Grace Nweke made a meteoric rise in 2019 after being elevated from training partner to fulltime member of the Mystics playing squad in very quick succession.

After making her debut in Round Three of last year’s competition, the 1.93m standout had become a fully-fledged member of the team by the completion of Round Six in an impressive start to a career at the elite level. Born in New Zealand, and of Nigerian descent, the teenager grabbed the spotlight with her prowess under the hoop, temperament and athletic ability. A richly talented player, Nweke is an exciting prospect who will further prosper with time, quickly gaining recognition with her selection in the 2019-20 Silver Ferns Development squad.
