We are #SunCoastProud of the Lightning


"A terrible day to have a terrible day" is what Sunshine Coast Lightning Captain Laura Langman eloquently said about the grand final game yesterday in which Lightning lost to NSW Swifts 64 to 47.

While we didn't get the threepeat we were hoping for, the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball season for the Lightning was not defined by how the grand final played out.

Hats off to the Swifts, they played an amazing game and you could see from the moment the game begun just how badly they wanted to win. A team marred by injury all season it was a truly  special moment seeing the elation on their faces as the final buzzer sirened.

Grand final aside, we'd like to take a moment to appreciate the season Lightning had this year and what an integral part of the Sunshine Coast community they have become in the last 3 years since they were founded.

From hosting local events for kids and adults a like to going to primary school netball finals or doing regional outreach up at Hervey Bay and out to Caboolture. Lightning (and likewise USC Thunder) have really proven themselves to not just be a "netball team" but are truly a part of our community.

The Lightning, the players and the whole team behind the scenes, really encapulate the Sunny Coast community spirit and even though the weekend didn't go to plan, we are so so proud (#SunCoastProud infact) of all you have achieved on and off the court.

Lastly to Noeline 'Aunty Noels' Taurura, thank you so much for building the team that you have and the Sunshine Coast will always consider you family and you will always have a home here.

If you want to get into the community spirit and thank the Lightning (team and coaches) for their hard work all season there is a comunity meet and mingle at USC today 5:30pm - 7pm at USC Sport (over by the stadium).
