Senior Awards Night – and the winners were!

Huge thanks to the ‘Sisters’ who organised this season’s Celebration and Awards Night.   A great evening was had by all that attended on Saturday.

Well done to our Senior Members on another solid season of water polo. It was fantastic to see the turn out to our Awards Night and to share in the laughter and stories that made the season special. There were some very funny Golden Moments, and some interesting”hidden team talents” that were shared among the group! IMG_1413

For those that were present to receive your award, we hope you enjoyed the special treatment and free drink on the MVP Lounge this year!!

And a big congratulations to our Best Outstanding Team Contribution Award winners, the Men’s Div 3 Bears. This award, proudly presented by Steve O’Keefe, recognises team spirit, commitment to water polo, mate-ship and importantly the giving back and supporting of others in the Club.

The Div 3 Bears resonate these traits, especially under the guidance of popular Team Manager Keith. Ask Keith about his newly learned Hungarian phrases too!! He is preparing the boys for Budapest. And his team were the only team to win a Senior Premiership this year!!

It was also great to see 2 of their players, Mark Mason and Rob Cullingford, recognised for their contribution to grass roots junior development through their coaching of U14 Boys and Girls teams over the past few years. Both men took their teams to State gold medals this year. Well done gentleman!

The infamous Dunny Seat award was won by Hendo….who sent Dave “most unlikely player to ever win this award” Cullingford to collect his award for him! Another smear on the seat Hendo! You need to ask Hendo what he did to earn this award!
