Monowe expressed her delight at the opportunity to represent her country at regional level.

“I never thought I’d be part of the senior team. I’m a rookie and only started playing last year. Even though I’m a little nervous, I’m definitely ready for the challenge, and hopefully I’ll put up a fight good enough to bring a medal home,” she said.
