Our Red Lionesses have banded together to support the St Saviours College Toowomba girls AFL team with immediate impact!
Our girls each pooled their hard-earned cash to purchase and donate a set of jerseys for the AFL Darling Downs school.
Breanna Koenen, Marnie McGorm and Sinead Hastie headed up the range to the school assembly last Friday 24 July 2015 to present the jerseys to the extremely excited schoolgirls, who were in the process of getting ready for their Grand Final later that evening.
All involved said that the smiles seen on the St Saviours girls’ faces were unbelievable, with one even exclaiming that she “felt invicible” in her new kit!
The St Saviours College girls then powered to a commanding 13.11-89 def 0.4-4 victory over St Josephs College Toowoomba to become the inaugural Under 17 Youth Girls premiers.
A massive congratulations to the St Saviours side, a huge thank you to Peter & Michele Rosengren for presenting this opportunity to our girls, cheers to David Lake and the team at Tribal Sport for supporting the cause, and compliments to our ladies on getting involved and supporting the future of Queensland’s women’s footy!
