In Pemberton, netball superstar Shannon Scaini was awarded A grade best and fairest for the 2022 season at the presentations on August 27. Kate Thexton was awarded runner-up and commended for her umpiring efforts over the year.

Scaini said she was surprised to have been awarded the accolade after their disappointing Grand Final loss earlier that night which saw the AlleyCatz defeat the Jaguars by 21 goals in a passionate game of netball to win back-to-back premierships.

“I felt very surprised when I won, I really wasn’t expecting it,” she said.
