One of the best shooters of her generation, Anne Sargeant had a decorated international career that continued for many years to follow as a TV commentator and ambassador of the sport.

An agile and accurate shooter, Sargeant proudly wore the green and gold for 11 years from 1978, the last six as captain.

She was part of three Australian Netball World Cup teams, being part of the 1979 (joint winners) and 1983 teams that claimed the title. Sargeant captained her country at the 1987 world titles, where Australia won the silver medal.

She was renowned for her sweet shooting skills, highlighted by three consecutive Tests where she shot at 100 per cent accuracy on Australia’s tour of Wales in 1985.

Since her playing days ended, Sargeant has become a fantastic ambassador for the sport of netball through her work in the media as a commentator over many years and her work running programs for young players.

In 2008 Sargeant was among the first intake into the Australian Netball Hall of Fame and remains a national selector of the current Australian Diamonds team.

Sargeant is a member of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame, elevated to legend status in 2015. In 1988 she was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for her service to netball.
