Proscovia At Peace In Lightning Colours

Peace Proscovia is relishing her time at Sunshine Coast Lightning.

She immediately demanded attention on court in the Suncorp Super Netball competition and off court feels she’s settled well, despite uprooting her entire life to be here.

And Peace credits the people around her for making that transition possible.

“I feel so blessed to be part of the Sunshine Coast Lightning team – I’ve settled well, everybody is amazing and the spirit in the team is actually high and that’s all I needed,” Proscovia said.

Five games into her first season in the SSN, she’s felt the lift in standard and believes it’s already benefiting her netball as a player.

“The truth is there’s no easy goal with this competition – all teams are good and the intensity is very high,” she said.

“Every second you blink off from the ball and you lose it – I like the intensity and the spirit.

“Especially moving forward to the World Cup, it’s a good training ground.

“There’s high pressure from the defenders and every single game you play they are getting to study you and know who you are.

“I’ll keep working on who I am and relying on my strengths.”

The dynamic goal shooter has scored 181 goals so far this league from 197 attempts, sitting fifth in the league.

And having been named in the starting seven for four of her five appearances so far, Peace is becoming a fan favourite for her athleticism and incredible reach.

The 29 year old has also quickly developed an affinity for the Sunshine Coast region and the club’s loyal fans – strengthened even further by the vocal crowd who turned up for her first game at USC Stadium last week.

“The crowd was amazing – they were everything that we needed and we are so proud to be part of Sunshine Coast,” she said.

“The people are so amazing, we love them and we are here to do our best for them.”

Sunshine Coast Lightning will face off against Melbourne Vixens on Saturday 1 June, from 3pm. Then stick around to support Lightning’s ANL affiliate Territory Storm when they take to the court from 5:45pm.
