Anna Bardini was the worthy recipient of Arana Netball Club’s 2017 Positive Or It’s Pointless Trophy, announced at presentation night in early September.
This award, as the name suggests, is for good sportsmanship and a positive approach to playing sport. The award is covered by a donation from the Hills Echo each year, and so is able to include a sports shop voucher along with the trophy, to assist the recipient a little as she continues in her chosen sport of netball.
As distinct from the Club’s senior sportsmanship award, the Hills Echo Positive Or It’s Pointless Award is restricted to junior players. Anna, as this year’s recipient, was singled out by her coach, Julie, and choosing Anna was endorsed by Committee personnel as they considered the most worthy player for the award. This year Anna played in Arana 7, Division 4, where the team moved into the semi-finals. Anna has been playing netball for six years, and we wish her all the very best as a role model as she continues to play sport.
Arana Netball Club once again thanks the Hills Echo very sincerely for their generosity in helping junior sport in the local area with this annual donation.
