Wilson found her place among the best defenders in the league in 2023, starring across all three defensive positions.

Playing across wing defence, goal defence and occasionally goal keeper, Wilson finished the season in fourth across the league for intercepts with 30 and fourth for deflections with 70.

She was named in the SSN Team of the Round on four occasions in both wing defence and goal defence, and was named as the wing defence in the 2023 SSN Team of the Year.

She was also voted by her peers as the 2023 Players’ Player for the Adelaide Thunderbirds.

Prior to joining Adelaide, Wilson signed with the Celtic Dragons in the Vitality Netball Superleague in the UK, although only played two games before the 2020 season was cancelled due to COVID-19.

In January of 2020, she made her debut for Jamaican international side the Sunshine Girls, teaming up with Sterling in the defensive goal circle for her country.

Off the court, Wilson is currently studying a Bachelor of Arts.
