Harwood eyes national recall

January 24, 2017

National shooter Thristina Harwood has set her sights on leading the Kingston Humming Birds to this year's Berger Elite League title, while she eyes a return to the Sunshine Girls set up.

The Humming Birds, who last won the title in 2014, are one win away from securing their second hold on the trophy, as they lead the best-of-three finals against the St. Ann Orchids 1-0, with Game Two scheduled for Thursday.

Harwood, the second leading scorer in this season's competition, was in superb form in game one, as she netted 38 goals from 48 attempts.

The 23-year-old Harwood said that she is confident the Humming Birds will close out the series on Thursday.


Come out victorious


"I know that the St. Ann Orchids are going to come out very strong for the second game but come Thursday, I will be ready," Harwood said.

"I know for sure that there won't be a game three because I am going to play my all out and so Kingston Humming Birds will come out victorious at the end," she said.

Harwood who last represented Jamaica at the 2015 Fast5 Series in New Zealand, said she is itching to get back in the national setup.

"I am definitely looking forward to getting back into the national team because I have been out of the squad for some time due to school issues," said Harwood, who is in her final year of her Bachelor of Science degree in management studies.
