Fan club to follow Laura at her 100th
WARWICK Netball Association will be represented by 11 members at the 100th national league game of former club junior Laura Geitz on Sunday at the Brisbane Entertainment and Convention Centre.
Geitz is originally from Allora and captain of the Mission Queensland Firebirds in this season's ANZ Championships.
She has played 71 ANZ Championship games and 28 in the Commonwealth Bank Cup, in which she debuted with the Canberra Darters while at the Australian Institute of Sport in 2006. She was Darters and Queensland 21 years captain in 2007
Association secretary Linda Bunch said the association had 11 tickets for each game.
"We go to the games in groups of three of four," Bunch said.
"It will be a fantastic milestone for Laura; she is an idol for all Warwick junior players."
Bunch remembers Geitz playing senior club netball while a student at Scots PGC.
"She was identified as a talent due to her general athleticism," Bunch said.
"Laura is a positive role model who encourages team members to excel."
Her mother Juanita Geitz was informed of the milestone by the Daily News.
"Nearly all of Laura and husband Mark's family will be there, including her six-month nephew Harry Pidgeon," she said.
"We all planned to go without knowing it was her 100th, so it will be even more special now. Two girls who Laura's sister Carla taught at Jundah will deliver the game balls."
Firebirds play Fever at 12.10pm Sunday in Brisbane. Bunch has some tickets available for Sunday.
