Lightning’s Offseason Adventures: Part 2

It’s that time of year where our players are afforded some free time away from the court.

The athletes have been travelling far and wide and making the most of their well deserved break.

Laura Langman

Most would think after a solid year of netball including Lightning, World Cup and Constellation Cup duties that Laura Langman would take some time out to rest…

Silver Ferns icon Laura Langman was presented the prestigious Dame Lois Muir Supreme Award at the 2019 New Zealand…

Instead we spy our captain competing in the Noosa Triathalon.

After jet-setting through her home country of New Zealand and Australia in the Constellation Cup, Lauz has returned to the Coast before pre-season begins.

Although not before being awarded the prestigious Dame Lois Muir Supreme Award at the 2019 New Zealand Netball Awards…

Karla Pretorius

A quick trip to Tasmania with her husband was on the cards when Lightning initially broke for holidays.

After enjoying some more time on the Sunny Coast, the goal defence is now South Africa-bound  to see family and friends and continue to recharge.

Pretorius has also been recognised in her home country for her elite sporting success in 2019.

Peace Proscovia 

Peace has stayed closer to home this holiday season, remaining on the Sunshine Coast after a big first season in the Suncorp Super Netball and the 2019 Netball World Cup.

She is also working hard on raising funds to transport the 700kg of quality sporting equipment and apparel back to her home town in Uganda for young aspiring athletes and children in need. 

Maddy McAuliffe 

First on the agenda was a trip to New Zealand to represent Australia in the Development Squad.

Now that netball is over, Maddy is Europe-bound with family, travelling to Spain.

Jacqui Russell

No rest for some.

Jac is taking time in the break to return to her second career of teaching.

And of course hanging out with her dogs whenever she can.
