What a Finish!

A great end to the Summer season – the 4th team finished top of their division with 15 out of 15 points, the 3rd team finished top of their division with 12 out of 15 points and the 1st and 2nd team finished 3rd and 4th in their division.  We could end up with 3 teams in the same division next year!

Special congratulations to Ati Collard who finished as the top player in her division (10 of the top 12 were Wellington players), and to Helen and Christina who were top scoring pair in their division, and Chris and Wendy who were top scoring pair in their division.

At our Annual Prize Giving we gave out trophies including those above plus top Veterans’ performer Helen Marengo and top overall performer Summer and Winter leagues was (again) Helen Marengo.  The ‘Most Valued Player’ award went to Siobhan Wood and ‘Most Promising Newcomer’ to Steph Diplock.  Special thanks to Helen who hosted on an unseasonably wet night and to Christina for her usual superb catering.  We were delighted that Ian Davis, Mark Smith and their wives were able to join us with Ian presenting the trophies; and for Simon, Wellington Head Coach, to join us (with his lovely girl friend who had just graduated – well done!) who has inspired us, cajoled us and made us the competitive bunch we now are.

We look forward to the Winter League when I am confident we will continue the outstanding performance that has come to be expected of Wellington Ladies players.
