Silky-smooth shooter Ameliaranne Ekenasio returns as the senior pro in the talented Pulse scoring end for 2021. With a spectacular high-arching shot, Ekenasio is a naturally talented all-round athlete who excels from the goal attack position. Ekenasio’s consistency in all facets of play took her game to new levels during a defining 2019 season. A fine mover and ball handler, Ekenasio is a confident long-range shooter who put the icing on a memorable year as a key cog in the Silver Ferns 2019 World Cup-winning triumph. Ekenasio reclaimed her spot in the Silver Ferns squad in 2018 after the birth of her first child, was part of the World Series-winning FAST5 Ferns team the same year and embellished her leadership credentials when assuming the Silver Ferns captaincy in 2020.
