Carey and Weier Take Regionals By Storm

Published: 17 June 2019

Townsville-based Hurricanes members Lachlan Carey and Makenzie Weier have taken the 2019 North Queensland Championships by storm, both achieving accreditation upgrades at the weekend's event.

Both officials performed strongly over the weekend, receiving positive feedback from both the regional referee coaching panel and the region's senior referees.

For Weier, it's the culmination of 18 months hard work as she recovered from injury and several knock-backs to finally achieve her Level Three accreditation. She has shown that hard work, determination, and resilience really do pay off, and sets a great example for the region's up-and-coming referees.

Carey, who is also part of Queensland Touch Football's Junior Emerging Talent Squad (JETS) programme, has again shown the region's referees that he's one to look out for in the future, as he not only picked up his Level Four accreditation, he also took home the event's "Most Promising Referee" award as well as a regional ranking after being appointed to control the 18 Boys Grand Final.

The upgrade to Level Four allows Carey to commence on his Graduation Pathway, which will see him trained as a referee coach and re-integrated into the Hurricanes programme as a mentor to the regions youth referees.
