University celebrates the impact of Lightning

8 Jun 2018

It’s almost two years since Sunshine Coast Lightning was established at the University of the Sunshine Coast as a joint venture between USC and NRL club Melbourne Storm.

In that time, the netball club has gone from strength to strength, claiming the inaugural Suncorp Super Netball national title in 2017 and earning strong community support.

As the region’s only national sporting team, Lightning holds a special place in the Sunshine Coast community, which it gives back to in many ways.

To celebrate the impact that Lightning is having on the Sunshine Coast, USC is featuring the club in its latest television campaign.
