Sterling lined-up for Loughborough Lightning in the 2018 Vitality Netball Superleague and was named MVP of the league. She leads the intercept count with 101 intercepts from 18 games, almost doubling the player ranked second.

The 22-year-old also won bronze at the Commonwealth Games in April, where she topped the competition’s intercept count.
“I’m really excited about joining the Thunderbirds and having an impact in defence to improve the results,” she said.

“I see that the club has a lot of potential and I want to contribute to and be part of the growth," Sterling said.

She is looking forward to improving her game in the Super Netball competition as she is set to face the likes of Australian Diamond Caitlin Bassett and fellow Jamaican teammates Jhaniele Fowler and Romelda Aiken.
Sterling is the first player announced for the Thunderbirds 2019 playing roster.
