Parmenter Claims Rising Star Award

Young GIANT Amy Parmenter has capped off a remarkable debut Super Netball season, winning the Suncorp Super Netball Rebel Rising Star Award.

Presented at the prestigious Australian Netball Awards in Sydney on Saturday night, Parmenter was on hand to accept the award.

The 22-year-old played every game in her debut Super Netball season, taking ownership of the WD position while also featuring in C on occasion.

She was named the Nissan Player of the Match in just her third match and was named in the starting seven for every match this season, in either WD or C.

In her first season, she matched up against some of the best players in World Netball, including Laura Langman, Liz Watson and Kelsey Browne.

It’s not just on the court where she is making a name for herself, with the ‘Parmy Army’ cheer squad quickly growing in numbers in the stands.

Parmenter has been a part of the GIANTS setup since the formation of the club. She was involved for the first two seasons as a training partner, including two seasons participating in the Australian Netball League (ANL), in which she proved she was a force to be reckoned with.

It was her performance in the ANL competition that earned her the elevation into GIANTS Netball’s 2019 SSN playing squad.
