Jamie Burgess’ Netball Future Shines Bright

Jamie Burgess has gone from rise to rise in the past nine years since she played her first Netball game at the young age of 7.

“My mum wanted me to try it out. She had made the Wide Bay team, then the Queensland team in her senior year.”

“I have played on the St Luke’s team at the Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Netball (QISSN) Carnival for two years now and loved every minute of it. Mrs Deer is such a strong and supportive coach, while Mrs Carty is an amazing manager. The combination of the two makes it no surprise that St Luke’s has always played the best they possibly can,” Jamie said.

This year St Luke’s did extremely well, winning 8 out of 10 games over the week of competitions and losing the grand final by only 1 point. “We did the best the school has ever done, and as the runners up, we can’t be prouder for our achievement,” Jamie said.

Topping off an awesome performance with the St Luke’s team at this year’s QISSN Carnival, Jamie won the Most Valued Player award in her division.

“I want to continue playing (Alloway) club netball and hopefully join the Bundaberg Netball senior team in the coming years.”
