Kerikeri Netball Centre Senior Prizegiving 2019
Welcome to Kerikeri Netball Centre Senior Prizegiving for 2019.
This season has seen the Senior Competition go from strength to strength at Kerikeri Netball Centre. We have loved watching teams putting it all out there on the court and have seen hard fought battles week in week out. The support provided by the army of volunteer helpers coaches, managers, water carriers and supporters helps our wonderful sport to be at the heart of our community and supports Kerikeri Netball Centre’s drive to increase capabilities throughout our sport. It has been wonderful tonight to see so many whanau and past Committee members, here to watch the final games for our season.
Of the many positives this year, it has been particularly awesome to see the comradeship between teams and a strong competitiveness on the court. This was evident in the innovative new introductory competition; the President’s Cup. I would like to invite our President, Mrs Jo Hona to come forward and present the first two awards:
Presidents Cup – KKNC Premier Grade – The Bubz
Presidents Cup – Wendy Cribb Premier 1 – Pioneer All Sorts
Could I invite former President Dot Dromgool to present the next awards …
Presidents Cup – Dot Dromgool A1 – KKHS Development
Presidents Cup – Linda Hurley A2 – Hardy’s Green
Presidents Cup – Glenys Ross B1 – Takou Bay Social
Presidents Cup – Ra Wright B2 – Kerikeri High School Senior Lightning
This year, Kerikeri Netball Centre continued in our commitment to athlete development. As part of this development programme, we were able to field an Under 15 Development Team this year. I coached this team, with support from an amazing Manager, Anna Jordan. Could the following players come forward:
Eva Forest-Chambers, Alana Jordan, Prisayus Kenny, Emma Lloyd, Ariella Ripohau, Ruby Robinson, Ocean Stilwell, Chloe Trim, Katja Zivkovich, Lily Hargrove
These girls worked hard in their Kerikeri and Whangarei Field Days. At Whangarei, it was awesome to see how much they had improved against the teams they had played previously in Kerikeri. They are a great bunch of girls, both on and off the court and we have really enjoyed working with them this season.
This year we also fielded a strong Under 15 team. As well as competing at Kerikeri and Whangarei Field Days, they, under the strong leadership of Coach Sharna May and Manager, our President Jo Hona, they travelled to the Under 15 Enviro Waste Tournament in Taranaki. I would like to invite Jo and Shaka to present the girls with their medals:-
Could you please come forward: Ngatawa Brown, Leilani Dephoff, Puti Harris, Mereana Huirama-Moore, Barbara Kuruleca, Adelia Latu, Elle Newman, Poshy Ngawiti, Aree Rush, Atea Rush, Juliette Wilkinson
The Centre would like to acknowledge Shaka and Jo for their awesome mahi with this team. We would also like to acknowledge umpires Cat Apiata who travelled to Whangarei with the Development team and Summer Turnbull, who travelled with the Under 15s.
This year, the centres from the Far North Cluster pooled their resources, to be able to take the best possible team to nationals. Kerikeri Netball Centre would also like to proudly acknowledge the following players who made the Northland Cluster Under 17 team this year; who competed at Nationals. Andrea Cotton, Danielle Dephoff, Ameyah Hape, Nicole Manning
