Khanyisa Chawane, centre player for the Free State Crinums and Kovsies netball teams, is officially the best netball player in the country. She was named Player of the Tournament at the conclusion of the Brutal Fruit Netball Premier League (BFNPL) on Sunday (17 June 2018). It is the premier competition on the South African netball calendar. She also earned the award of Best Centre Court Player.

Khanyisa, or simply KC as she is known, was a consistent performer for the Crinums   earning three Player of the Match awards. Although she is the shortest player in the team she impressed with her speed and handling skills on the court.
The Free State Crinums, packed with Kovsie players, finished the competition in fourth position. 

The Crinums is a ‘de facto’ Kovsie sports team, with all 15 squad members currently completing a course at the university. All of them will be available to play in the University Sport South Africa (USSA) tournament that is taking place in the first week of July 2018 in Bloemfontein. 

The Crinums, who ended fifth last year after losing a number of key players from the 2016 team, were officially the youngest participating team with an average age of 21 years and five months by the start of the league last month.
