Onika Wallerson grew up watching cricket with her father and instantly fell in love with the sport. Her family had always supported her and encouraged her to pursue the game.
Onika and her brothers creatively looked for ways to play the sport, making do with anything that they could hit with a bat in their back yard. Eventually, she asked her father to help her join a club. Playing with her brothers is the foundation for her intense passion for the sport of cricket.
As a substitute for consistent outdoor matches in Jersey, Onika has taken her training indoors to stay in shape and focus on her fundamentals. While not ideal, she has found a way to prepare herself despite the cold weather and the lack of outdoor training facilities.
Onika is very excited for the future of #TeamUSA and believes that team chemistry is already strong, even with such a short period of time together as a unit.
