Fowler crowned MVP

Posted a month ago.

West Coast Fever shooter Jhaniele Fowler has capped off her 2019 campaign by being crowned the Club’s 2019 Most Valuable Player.

Fowler was a runaway winner of the award, with the Jamaican shooter also claiming the Player’s Player Award for the second consecutive year at tonight’s event at The Westin in the City of Perth.

The accolade is yet another award for the superstar, who has cemented herself as the best shooter in the world, finishing the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball season with 709 goals, the most in the League for the second year running.

The award caps off a significant year for Fowler, who captained Jamaica at the 2019 Netball World Cup.

Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich congratulated Fowler on another outstanding season.

“Jhaniele’s dedication, hard work and leadership make her a truly deserving winner of the MVP award,” Marinkovich said.

“The way in which Jhaniele conducts herself, both on and off the court, is to be admired, and we’re incredibly proud to have her playing in the green dress for the next two seasons.”

“Jhaniele is incredibly passionate about West Coast Fever, our Members and fans, and the wider community, and on behalf of the Club, I offer her my sincere congratulations.”

Young gun defender Olivia Lewis was rewarded for a sensational first season at the elite level by being awarded the 2019 Coach’s Award, while Captain Courtney Bruce was awarded the PerthNow People’s Choice Award for the third consecutive season.

Club doctor, Dr Gary Couanis, was named Club Person of the Year, after displaying tremendous dedication to the program, and embodying Fever’s values of being united, professional, innovative and courageous.

A number of milestones were also recognised on the night, including the National League debuts of Olivia Lewis and Sunday Aryang, the West Coast Fever debuts of Alice Teague-Neeld and Beryl Friday, and the 50 game celebrations of Ingrid Colyer, Stacey Francis and Shannon Eagland.

Fever became the first Club in Suncorp Super Netball to secure their 2020 squad last week, with the Club now calling on the Fever faithful to register their interest for 2020 Membership here.
