Storm’s Lorraine Kowalewska retires

Lorraine has today confirmed that she has retired from Surrey Storm.

Wow what a privilege it has been to play with some of the best netballers in the industry. I’m so grateful to the coaches who have guided me and to those who gave me an opportunity. It didn’t always work out the way I had hoped but with time, hard work and dedication I’m proud of what I achieved. I’ve met some lifelong friends along the way and for that I’m a truly grateful. This season may have not ended the way I would have liked but it certainly is the ‘LAST ONE’.

Thank you to all the fans who have supported me and Storm through the years. Thank you to @surreystorm for your commitment to me through the years but also through my toughest year last season. I will certainly miss everyone but I’m looking forward to spectating and witnessing some amazing new young talent…Storm for life!

“Lorraine has been a stalwart of the VNSL for over a decade! and her service to netball in general is unparalleled and we are so lucky that she chose to see out her career in Duck Egg Blue.”

“To return back to court and play some of her best netball after the birth of her daughter Yoasha speaks volumes of her dedication and attitude to training. Lorraine is one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with, I wish her nothing but the best for the future and I look forward to working closely with her off the court.”
