Scott said she was happy to receive the award.
“My coaches and teammates supported me all year,” she said.
“I’d like to thank mum for taking me to all the games and Donna Spalding for coaching me and getting me here. I need to thank my team and Molly too.”
Lakin said she thought Scott would have beaten her in the end.
“I’m pretty relieved, I thought Racquel might have had me in the end, she definitely came home strong,” she said.
“I was a bit surprised, I thought some of my teammates would have taken some votes off me.
“My parents have made a big commitment this year. I also want to thank all my coaches and interleague coaches too.”
In the 15 and under B grade, Horsham’s Kate Sleep took out the award from Stawell’s Jemma and Charli Peters.
