Long time coming

MILESTONE: Lisa McGregor reached her 200th game for Port MacDonnell Netball Club on the weekend.


IT has taken a while, but Lisa McGregor has finally chalked up her 200th game with the Port MacDonnell Netball Club.

McGregor started her netball career at Port MacDonnell in 1996 in the Junior 2, progressing through to Under 13’s in 1998.

In her debut competitive season, she played in the grand final and finished runners-up.

The year 2000 was a stellar season for McGregor, as she was awarded the Mid South East Under 15’s runner-up best and fairest, Port MacDonnell best and fairest and the club consistency award, along with the premiership to cap it all off.

Advancing to Under 17’s the next season, her team claimed the premiership again.

For the next two seasons in Under 17’s she won best and fairest and most consistent.

In 2004 McGregor joined the A Grade ranks for her full season in seniors, after filling in previously as a junior.

McGregor then played A Reserves in 2005 before following her husband Ben to play at South Gambier.

She returned in 2012 for 12 games in the A Grade then was gone until 2017, when she had two sons.

In 2017 she played A Reserves and the team finished runners-up, plus McGregor claimed the best and fairest honours.

In 2019 she played A Reserves but only one game before a knee injury and son number three arrived.

In 2021 McGregor is back in the A Grade side playing in defence.

She received her 150 games in the first eight years of her netball career and has taken the next 16 to get the last 50.

She is currently secretary of the Port MacDonnell Football Club and is supported by her husband Ben and their three sons Jack, Leo and Sonny.
