THE MEENIYAN and District Netball Club held its presentation night on Saturday, September 8 in Meeniyan Uniting Church Hall.
The night was well attended by players and their families, partners and friends, the committee, coaches and life members Lorna Anthony and Ros Roberts.
The 11 and Under players were recipients of medallions and certificates.
13 and under players received a certificate.
Hayley Phillips was voted as runner-up best and fairest player, Ruby Martin was voted best and fairest player, and Abbey Robbins was awarded an encouragement award.
Gemma Martin was awarded runner up best and fairest player for the 15 and Under team, with Claire Jobling winning the best and fairest award.
All 15 and under players received a certificate, medallion and gift of a netball playing teddy!
The 17 and C Grade ‘Blue’ team had Alana Bright as their best and fairest player, and Genevieve Scholte as their runner up best and fairest player.
All players received a certificate, medallion and gift of a key ring.
The 17 and Under C grade ‘Yellow’ team opted for each of their players to be awarded a block of their preferred chocolate, rather than have trophies or medallions awarded.
Five teams played the 2012 season at the Leongatha and District Netball Association courts (which is one more team than in 2011), with the 15 and Under team winning the grand final by two goals against Town Black on Saturday, September 8.
Meeniyan and District Netball Club has had a successful 2012 year in other ways also, with the introduction of a new uniform, the purchasing of new equipment, and having a number of players chosen to represent Leongatha in the LDNA netball tournament in July.
The Meeniyan and District Netball Club would like to thank everyone who assisted or supported the club in some (or numerous) ways over the course of the season.
The club will hold its AGM on February 12 at the Meeniyan Rec Reserve netball courts.
The club also welcomes any interested players for the 2013 season to register their interest by contacting either Jacquie Mowat on 5664 4427 or Kerry Mangiafico on 5664 5471. Please also contact Jacquie or Kerri if you have any questions.
In 2013, Meeniyan and District Netball Club is hopeful to enter teams in the 11, 13, 15 and 17 and Under and C Grade sections, with B and A teams also an option if enough interest is shown.
