Ever since they took gold in Maputo last September at the All Africa games, the She Cranes netball team’s success have been elusive. The team won the Zanzibar Chama Chama Pinduzi revolutionary tourney after edging Zambia with a 52-33 win.
The She Cranes defied odds and did their country proud even after overcoming knotty financial
constraints which had deterred their preparations and hopes prior to the event. Creditable performances from captain Florence Amono, NIC’s Racheal Nanyonga and UCU’s Peace Proscovia, the USPA 2011 netballer steered the She Cranes to the top.
Nowonder, they won the USPA 2011 team of the year. They took the prize money and will return home today.
We had erroneously reported that the She Cranes we to prepare for the London Olympics. Much as Netball was recognised as an Olympics Sport, it wont feature at the 2012 Olympics. Thanks Phil for pointing that out to us
