Jensz’s season gets better

Mia Jensz’s outstanding 2017 season got even better when she took out Navarre’s under 17 netball best and fairest on Friday night. 

The under 17 netballer finished ahead of Melita Squire who took out the runners-up award.

Jensz has been one of Navarre’s best netballers at the club for the season, having also won the under 17 Maryborough Castlemaine District Netball League best and fairest in August.

The junior netballer was also given multiple interleague opportunities throughout the season, being named best on court for the under 17 team and making her senior interleague debut. 

The under 17 Grasshoppers had an abrupt end to the season, bowing out in the semi finals. 

Despite finishing fourth and earning a double chance, Navarre were eliminated following consecutive finals losses.

A positive to come out of the year however was the senior experience given to the under 17 players. 

Melita Squire was runner-up in the best and fairest, while Georgia and Ruby Bibby won the coach’s and most improved awards respectively. 

Sophie Bibby won the under 15 netball best and fairest at the presentation night.

Similarly to Jensz, she won the league best and fairest for her age group back in August. 

Bonnie Weir finished as the runner-up to Bibby. 

Tabitha Bibby won the under 15 coach’s award. 

It was a tough season for Navarre’s under 15 netball side, winning just four games throughout the season and drawing one. 

Players in the under 13 team were presented with medallions while the mods players were given a gift. 

The under 13 team struggled during the year but fought hard, eventually claiming one victory in 2017.
