From ru­ral am­bas­sador and char­ity queen to play­ing women’s foot­ball

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

SHEREE Jewess has rep­re­sented her home town of Biggen­den in such ar­eas as Bur­nett Sub Cham­ber Ru­ral Am­bas­sador, Bundy Thun­der Char­ity Queen and can now tick se­lected to rep­re­sent Cen­tral Di­vi­sion in rugby league off her bucket list.

Sheree started play­ing rugby league in un­der 7s for Isis Devils Ju­nior foot­ball club with the boys and then on and off through­out high school.

For the past five years Sheree has played in the women’s league com­pe­ti­tion and was able to be a part of three pre­mier­ships and se­cur­ing player of the 2014 grand fi­nal.

Sheree now plays for the Isis Devils women’s team. “I love it, it’s in my blood. “If you ask my hus­band he will tell you I live for it,” Mrs Jewess said.

Be­ing brought up on the farm, the last of six kids and from a foot­ball ori­en­tated fam­ily Sheree was never go­ing to be dainty lady.

Her fa­ther, brother and un­cles played foot­ball.

Maybe Sheree will fol­low in the foot­steps of her re­la­tion PJ Marsh and get her chance to wear the ma­roon jersey and rep­re­sent this great state of Queens­land. This dream is in reach if Sheree is se­lected at the state tri­als.

Be­ing a work­ing mother of two young boys and hav­ing a hus­band that works away Sheree jug­gles around her busy daily rou­tine to fit in train­ing when she can.

In her spare time she is Biggen­den Touch Foot­ball Club pres­i­dent, helps out with Biggen­den Lit­tle Ath­let­ics when able and is Biggen­den P&C As­so­ci­a­tion vice pres­i­dent.

When Sheree is not do­ing this vol­un­teer work, she is fit­ting in some qual­ity fam­ily time as they will al­ways come first.
