Young Blighty netballer Sophie Lostroh at the Picola & District Netball League vote count on Monday.
Blighty netballer Sophie Lostroh was rewarded for a top season when she was named Picola & District Netball League’s runner-up under-15s best and fairest on Monday night.
Playing mainly in centre and goal defence, Lostroh polled 26 votes from 15 games to finish second behind Strathmerton’s Chelsea Caughey (31 votes).
The Deni Rovers’ Jackie Thorpe was third with 24 votes.
Tomorrow, Lostroh will captain the Blighty side against Jerilderie, with the winner advancing to the grand final.
Although a premiership would cap the season off nicely, it has already been a stellar one for Lostroh who competed at the NSW State Age Netball Championships in Sydney in July.
In other junior netball results, Jerilderie took a clean sweep of the under-17s and under-13s trophies.
Dees mid-courter Kiara Keating won the under-17s best and fairest ahead of teammate Paige Nash, while Isobelle Bradford won the top award in under-13s ahead of Elouise Barlow.
