Representing Queensland in multiple sports as well as competing in the state’s premier netball league, Sophia has achieved more in her sporting career at just 16 than many would imagine in their lifetime.

“My goal is to succeed in my sporting endeavours however I have also realised I have the opportunity to be a role model with my peers both within and outside of my chosen sports. My sporting achievements simply put me in a position and give me the platform to contribute to others in a positive manner. I am passionate about respect, hard work and making the right choices. I am going to need as much support as I can muster to achieve these goals and also to achieve my personal goal of representing Australia (fingers crossed 2028 & 2032 Olympics)”

Sophia is currently a member of the following Queensland state sporting teams:

  • CLC Tigers Netball Team competing in Queensland’s premier semi-professional netball league (Hart Sapphire Series). 5 players from this league in 2021 have moved up to Suncorp Super Netball. The strength of the league is also evident with the 2022 inclusion of the Gold Coast Titans Netball team which is a sister team to the NRL Rugby league team.
  • Queensland Under 17 Netball Squad
  • Queensland Under 18 Beach Volleyball Team
  • Queensland Under 18 Indoor Volleyball Team
  • Queensland Academy of Sport

On top of that, Sophia was recently selected in the Australian Under 17 Netball squad – attending the Australian Institute of Sport in July with the final 12 athletes who make up the AUS travelling team.

At her local club, the Carina Leagues Club, Sophia was asked to join the Tigers Player Leadership Team – acting as an advocate for the players and reporting back to the Tigers Netball franchise.

Sophia is an incredible person and athlete – we are so honoured to be associated with such an accomplished young woman.
