It was a season of twists and turns as members of the broader Kew community fought it out to see who would take home the Kew Mixed Netball Autumn Season Championship. For the first time, captains hand-picked their team in a riveting draft night. Each captain came away confident that their team had what it takes to bring home the championship, but only one could win.
The season saw many close games, including a draw early on! With the teams so evenly competitive, it was hard to see who would break away. To add some extra excitement, an All-Star Round was introduced with a series of tantalising match-ups. There was Res v Non-Res, an all First-Years match and finally, the All-Star game. It gave the players a nice relief from the highly competitive regular season and allowed some players to try some moves that they would never try in a regular match.
At the conclusion of the regular season, the Grand Final ended up as Crown Jules, led by Julia Malan, and Gabe’s Babes, led by Gabe Cullen. In the end, it was Gabe’s Babe who were victorious, taking home the Championship trophy. They were led by some inspiring performances from Jeremy O’Shannessy and Hetty Munn, who were awarded the ‘Best on Court’ titles.
It was an exciting season, but it is now history as we look forward to the Spring Season!
