Our Annual Netball Dinner and Awards night was held last week in The Great Hall with our netballers, parents and special guests enjoying the season successes. Each team presented some very entertaining speeches debriefing their season and highlighting their season experiences.
Special guest for the evening was Australian Netball Legend, Vicki Wilson, who entertained us all with her informative, inspirational, fun interview conducted by our own Sinead Kelly.
Recognition and thanks went to long-serving volunteer of Somerset, Carla Cerutti, for her time, dedication, and support to the Somerset Netball Programme.
As part of the Major Awards, five of our Year 12s and Senior 1st players, Xanthe Cerutti, Chelsea Blauberg, Manon Chamberlain, Cristina Vinaccia and Sinead Kelly were recognised for their dedication, commitment and service to Somerset Netball. The girls individually spoke with admiration and gratitude to their coach Mrs Burns for all she has done for them, on and off the court.
