Charlestown Netball Association finals

20 September 2022

Ms JODIE HARRISON (Charlestown)— The Charlestown Netball Association hosted 13 deciders, across the juniors, intermediates, cadets and seniors divisions, at the Bula Street Netball Complex in Charlestown at the end of August.

Despite rain on the Friday night, clear blue skies greeted the players on Saturday morning—and they played some fantastic netball.

The first grand final in years, thanks to COVID-19 shutdowns, there was amazing energy on the courts and amongst the crowd. There were some nail-biters over the course of the day, with CNC Caution ultimately claiming the win in the senior A honours.

Caution's Emma Campbell picked up the 2022 Irene Murray Medal, recognised as the most valued player decider, while Renee Keast was recognised with the 2022 Sportsmanship Award. The Umpires Encouragement Award went to Ella Ham, while Alison Prestwidge claiming the coaches' award, and Ella Young was presented with the 2022 Marie Caddies Umpires Award.

Although this marked the end of the main competition season, the Charlestown Netball Association will still be busy—and I'm looking forward to the twenty-first Koori Netball Tournament in October.
