Flames of passion burn brightly
within student
By ANGELINA DRACA

As one of Australia's up and coming basketball players, Adrianne Gilbert is surprisingly unassuming.
The 17-year-old from Westfields Sports High School is the newest rookie with women's national baskeyball league team Sydney Flames and was recently selected in the Australian all schools basketball team to tour Malaysia and Thailand in January 2003.
Gilbert began her Flames career on the bench during their round one 72-66 win over Canberra Capitals but she couldn't be happier.
"I don't care if I don't get to play, I'm just excited sitting on the bench wearing the uniform," she said.
She knows the Flames is the perfect stepping stone to a successful basketball career but is remaining grounded about her future.
"I'm not really striving to be in the Opals, whatever happens happens," she said.
