The netball department at the Deni Rovers continues to impress and was the recipient of several awards at the Picola & District Football Netball League senior presentation night on Monday.
Rachel Braybon took out the league’s C grade best and fairest, while Tegan Arnold snared the C-Reserve medal.
To top it all off, the Rovers received the Champion Club trophy for its stunning efforts on the netball court.
It was the fourth year in a row the Roos have won the prestigeous award.
‘‘It’s a great honour to be named Champion Club again,’’ netball coordinator Tenille Blake said.
‘‘They work it out by a points system and we had no idea we were going to win it.
‘‘It has been a pretty succesful year. We had all but one netball team make it into finals and all of those teams made it to the second round.
‘‘We have three of them playing in the grand final (tomorrow), so hopefully there’s more celebrations to come.’’
Braybon polled 17 votes to win C grade honours ahead of Mathoura’s Emma O’Callaghan and Olivia Harding-Davies (16 votes each).
All three of those players will meet tomorrow, when the Rovers take on Mathoura in the grand final.
Den’s C-Reserve side meets Jerilderie in the grand final and will be brimming with confidence after Arnold’s league win.
She attracted 22 votes to comfortably beat Mathoura runner-up Melyssa Banks by seven.
Timbercutters defender Shannon Mills tied for the B grade best and fairest. In an amazing turn of events, she shared the medal with Picola United’s Kim McPherson and Pam Smith after each player polled 18 votes.
Capping off a great night for Mathoura was young gun Gracie Berryman being named Rising Star of the senior competition. Berryman, still able to play under-17s, polled nine votes in the A grade vote count.
The winner of the A grade Lukies medal was Tocumwal’s Leah Pate with an impressive 35 votes.
