Basketball[edit]

Lewis played her junior basketball for the Sturt Sabres of South Australia.[1] Lewis first played in the WNBL during the 2005/2006 season where she played for the Perth Lynx.[1] She did not play in the WNBL during the 2006/2007 and 2007/2008 season.[1]

Lewis joined the Canberra Capitals for the 2008/2009 season and continued to play for them during the 2009/2010 season,[1] where she played the role of bench forward in a season when the club won the WNBL Championship.[2] During the season, Lauren Jackson was quoted as saying the Capitals training was really intense because of players like Lewis.[3] Lewis and her teammates watched the 2009/2010 preliminary final together, and made a bet amongst themselves as to who would win the game and with what score. Each player put in $2 AUD. Lewis won the bet.[4] At the end of the season, Lewis attended a costume party at Marianna Tolo and Carly Wilson's house with the rest of her teammates to celebrate their WNBL Championship win.[5]

Lewis was also a member of the Capitals 2010/2011 team.[6][7] That season, in the pre-season, she played in the September 2010 game against the Sydney Uni Flames.[8] At the beginning of the season, team captain Jessica Bibby said Lewis was one of the promising players on that season's team.[9] At the end of the season, she was a free agent.[10]

In 2010, Lewis played for the Canberra Nationals in the Waratah Basketball League.[11] She was joined by several of her Canberra Capitals teammates including Lauren Jansen, Chantella Perera, Kellie Abrams and Nicki Graham.[12] In the team's fourth victory of the season, a 62 to 53 win against the Hornsby Spiders, Lewis led the team with 20 points and 8 rebounds.[11][13] In the Grand Final loss versus Bankstown Bruins, she scored 14 points.[14]
