• Bushrangers celebrate best and fairest

    The presentation ceremony was held at the Baarmutha Park Function Centre and not just sporting performances were awarded on the night.

    Milestone club games were also recognised with Sheree Mooney and Dayne Carey playing their 100th games for the Bushrangers, while Brayden Carey played his 150th and Coby Surrey her 200th match.

    It was a tough year for the Bushrangers football sides without a team making the finals, but on the court the Bushrangers netballers were able to produce some great results and win enough games to qualify for the finals in A grade and the under 18s.

    The A grade especially, as they were able to qualify in fifth spot but lifted their games in the finals to reach a preliminary final, where they lost by 25 goals to Wahgunyah.

    The under 18s also qualified in fifth, and were eliminated by Rutherglen in the first round.

    The best and fairest winners and runners up for the netball saw A grade goal defence Isabel Grundy win the award ahead of her defensive partner Carina Tenance.

    In B grade, Sarah Robinson and Alice Poyntnz shared the best and fairest, while Christine Powell was the runner up.

    The C grade best and fairest was won by Maddison Howard with Amy Carey as her runner up.
