Well-travelled shooter Ellen Halpenny is back for a second year with the Stars. A versatile and clever player, Halpenny turned out for the Scotland Sirens in the England Super League in 2017 before returning to New Zealand and teaming up with the Stars in 2018. Halpenny was a foundation player for the Tactix (2008-12) followed by a stint with the Magic (2013-16). She spent five years in the NZU21 squad followed by the Silver Ferns Development squad. She gained full Silver Ferns status when making the cut for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Equally adept at both shooting positions, Halpenny adds a wealth of experience to the Stars attack line.
