USC to host Lightning’s Community Thank You event

Published:

Sunshine Coast Lightning’s annual Community Thank You event will be held at USC Stadium on Monday 16 September from 5.30-7pm.

USC, which is a joint owner of Lightning, is hosting the event to give fans the chance to meet players and coaching staff, collect signatures, and say farewell to the club’s foundation coach Noeline Taurua.

Despite losing today’s Suncorp Super Netball grand final 64-47 to the NSW Swifts, Lightning still has plenty to celebrate from its 2019 season.
 
The team won 12 of its 14 fixtures and, for the first time, finished the season as minor premiers. Lightning remains the only club to have played in every grand final since the Suncorp Super Netball league began in 2017.

USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Hill encouraged fans to attend the Community Thank You event and bring along one item each to be autographed by the entire playing group.

There will be speeches by Lightning captain Laura Langman, coach Noeline Taurua and CEO Danielle Smith, along with Professor Hill and Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson.

Lightning CEO Danielle Smith said this event was a highlight in the club’s annual calendar, as players and staff acknowledge the unwavering support of the Sunshine Coast region.

“It will be fantastic to have our community celebrate the 2019 season with us on Monday,” she said. “It also provides the community with the opportunity to pay tribute to our beloved departing coach Noeline Taurua.”
