Madibaz goal shooter Nolusindiso Twani, who has delivered strong performances throughout the Varsity Netball tournament, was positive about the team’s Varsity Netball campaign this season.
The 21-year-old has had an outstanding season and has been awarded the Best Shot-award three times for her performances against Vaal University of Technology, University of Pretoria and University of Johannesburg.
Earlier this year, the sports management student stepped out in national colours as part of the U21 team at the World Youth Netball Championships in Gaborone, Botswana.
Although the Port Elizabeth squad were short on the desired results, the third-year was positive about the team and tournament as a whole.
“We have really progressed this season. If you compare our scores to last year, the margins are much better and I think as a team we did well.
“The last game will also be a good opportunity for me to step it up a notch again.”
They suffered their third loss of the season against North-West University at their second home game, which took place on Monday, but Twani they were determined to put on a good show in their next match against Stellenbosch University at the Coetzenburg Indoor Centre on Monday.
They got off to a strong start against Pukke with little to separate the two sides initially, but, as the clock ticked on, things started to unravel for the girls from Nelson Mandela University and they went down 22-44.
“I think we’ve got a good chance to take it against Maties. We just need to keep our heads in the right place and go out there and play our hearts out in our last game.”
They set out unwavering in their mission to finish in the top four, but a rollercoaster season means they will most likely finish fifth after three wins and three losses from six games.
However, Twani said the their ability to surprise would make it difficult for Maties and the team were motivated to end their run on a high.
