Goorambat netballers brought home plenty of honours at the Ovens and King Football Netball League best and fairest awards this month.
A-grade playing coach Amelia Skilbeck was awarded the Fay Morgan medal for best and fairest in A-grade, and was selected alongside former Fay Morgan medallist Kylie Relf as a substitute for the league team of the year.
Skilbeck has been playing for Goorambat for almost 15 years and played her 250th game for the club this season.
Emma Warnock was the best and fairest winner for B-reserve, proving that she is a skilful defender for the club.
She is new to Goorambat this year and is a quick ball mover with a brilliant intercept rate.
Equal runner-up in the B-grade best and fairest was Kelsey Moss. This was well deserved considering her switch from the goal ring to defence part way through this season, proving herself as an all rounder.
With more than 10 years of loyalty to the club, Moss made her 200th game milestone this year.
Winner of the Flo Egan medal for Under-17s was Alisha Knight. Her cool, casual manner on court is deceiving, as she can come out of nowhere to get a ball and regularly displays talent that will see her quickly move through the grades after her time in Under-17s.
Brittany Button was also awarded Most Valuable Player in the league in under-17s and came runner-up in the best and fairest count. Fifty club games in the finals series will add to Button’s list of netball achievements.
