The Ugandan She Cranes have selected their squad for the Netball World Cup, starting next month in Cape Town.

From the squad of 12, Mary Cholhok who stars in the Netball Super League for Loughborough Lightning has been selected for her Ugandan side.

Cholhok had a stellar 2023 NSL season: winning the league with Loughborough Lightning, being the 2023 Gilbert Top Scorer and finally winning the Fast5 All Star tournament with Manchester Thunder.

Cholhok scored a whopping 908 goals over the season, finishing comfortably in first place as Top Goal Scorer with a 58 goal advantage over second place Lenize Potgieter of Manchester Thunder. Mary also won this award in 2021 and 2019.

This will be Mary’s second Netball World Cup after her debut in 2019 in Liverpool.
