Geitz wins gold with new kits

JUANITA Geitz reckons the response was unbelievable to the new netball training kits which have been developed by daughter Laura.

On Saturday, mother and daughter were at Nell Robinson Park, Toowoomba, for the launch of the clothing where a presentation was made to Laura in recognition of her gold-medal win in the World Netball Championships in Singapore nine days ago.

After a night home at Allora, the Geitz family travelled to Gatton on Sunday for the Darling Downs Inter-district Carnival.

“The response was unreal,” Juanita said.

“Laura is so excited about it she is going to the country carnival at Graceville at the weekend.

“She has already run out of some items. “Laura is proud that the clothing is made in Brisbane and has a ‘Made in Australia’ label.”

Laura and former Warwick student and now Netball Queensland media and communications manager Christine Munson went to the Warwick Netball Association tent at the inter-district carnival.

With a short break, Geitz plans some time on the family farm at Allora, where she wants to help her father and be at home for her grandmother’s birthday.

“She and (fiancee) Mark Gilbride are going to the Windorah Yabby Races and the Birdsville Races before she goes into camp with the Diamonds on September 6.”

In other netball news, NetFest is on at the Gold Coast on September 8-11.

There will be indoor, outdoor and beach competitions for players of all standards.
