Mayor Jamieson - Good luck to the Lightning
  • Friday 03 August 2018

Our Sunshine Coast Lightning have had another fantastic season in 2018 - both on and off the court.

With just one round remaining in the Suncorp Super Netball home and away season, our team is in the top four and well placed for back-to-back finals appearances.

On the back of their memorable title success in 2017, that would be a tremendous achievement for coach Noeline Taurua and her players and support staff.

Of course, once you're in the finals, there is always the chance of a grand final appearance and a premiership victory but I'm sure the Lightning squad are looking no further than this Sunday afternoon's vital clash with the Vixens in Melbourne.

You'll be able to watch that game live on Channel Nine.

Helping the Lightning along the way this year has been a devoted and noisy fan base which has produced a sequence of sellouts at USC Stadium.

We can look forward to an even larger stadium for home games next year giving even more Lightning supporters the chance to come along and cheer on their team.

Best of luck to the Lightning this weekend. #SunCoastProud
