Jamaica's Romelda Aiken now holds the record of all-time leading goal-scorer in ANZ Netball Championship history. Earlier this week, the star shooter eclipsed Irene Van Dyk's previous record by setting her own: 2, 585 goals. Aiken is one of three Jamaican international players (all goal-shooters, coincidentally) competing in the 2013 ANZ competition, which features clubs from New Zealand and Australia. The other two are Carla Borrego and Sunshine Girl Jhaniele Fowler.
