Northern Districts Masters Div 1 Winners!

Congratulations to Northern Districts Masters on their Div 1 grand final win! They continued with their season dominating form to decisively beat Hoggies in a game that at times was quite physical.

DNA 2010 Best & Fairest

Last Saturday was the DNA’s best and fairest awards night held at the Mirambeena Resort. Northern Districts centre court utility Liz McCouaig tallied a respectable third in the standings having completed her inaugural DNA season with the club, whilst Marissa Chaplin was in fifth. In a tight finishing countback, Pint’s premiership player and goal shooter Megan Fitzpatrick took home the honors.

The NT News has published an article in today’s newspaper on Megan’s successful season:

Pints’ premiership shooter Megan Fitzpatrick continues to score goals long after the Darwin Netball Association season has wrapped up. Her latest achievement, taking out the DNA best-and-fairest award last week, comes after representing the Territory Storm in the Australian Netball League and winning the DNA premiership in July. Only the last three rounds of the DNA votes were counted on the night, with Fitzpatrick edging out Hoggies captain Shannon Millar. “I was pretty surprised, I polled in all of the last three rounds and so did Shannon so it was pretty close,” Fitzpatrick said.

Pre-season Training Underway

Hi all,
Well training started on Thursday night and it was great to see quite a lot of new faces, and old as well. Thanks to Lizzie for putting us through our paces, and I am sure that all of us were a bit pooped today (or I was anyway).

Next training is at the Palmerston Indoor Sports center (next to the library) on Monday from 6.30 to 7.30 and could I ask all those attending to bring $5 to help cover the court hire.

If you have yet to reply to my emails, please do so, so that we can get an idea of how many players, and in what grades they will be.

See you all soon,
Claire Elliston
