Fowler to shine at Commonwealth Games

West Coast Fever shooter Jhaniele Fowler has been named in the Jamaican Sunshine Girls Squad for the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Fowler becomes the second West Coast Fever athlete to represent their country at the event, following defender Courtney Bruce’s selection for Australia earlier this week.

The Jamaican joined Fever following five seasons playing in New Zealand, where she established herself as one of the world’s best shooters, scoring more than 3,500 goals at 91% accuracy.

Fowler has played 48 Tests for Jamaica, and also represented her country at the Fast5 World Series in Melbourne last year.

West Coast Fever Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich congratulated Fowler on her selection.

“Jhaniele has worked incredibly hard to reach her third Commonwealth Games, and this selection solidifies her standing as a dominant international shooter,” Marinkovich said.

“Jhaniele has certainly been a welcome addition to the Club since she joined us in January, and I know everyone at West Coast Fever is immensely proud of her.”

“We wish Jhaniele the best of luck at the Commonwealth Games, and look forward to seeing her in action.”

Jamaica opens its 2018 Commonwealth Games campaign against Fiji on Thursday April 5, before its remaining pool matches against South Africa (April 6), Northern Ireland (April 8), Barbados (April 9) and Australia (April 11).
