Inglewood's Jenna O'Sullivan is this year's Taranaki senior netballer of the year.
O'Sullivan received the trophy in New Plymouth last night with the award capping off a fantastic year for the 19-year-old defender.
It was the fourth trophy of the year for O'Sullivan who splits her season playing for Massey University in the Manawatu premier competition and for Inglewood in the Taranaki premier one competition.
She won two awards at the Manawatu end-of-season awards night - the most promising under-21 player and the Manawatu premier player of the year award.
A few weeks later, O'Sullian and her Inglewood team-mates claimed the Taranaki premier one title with a decisive 51-34 win over Raukura in the grand final.
"She was on form for us this year. She never trained with us because of her commitments in Manawatu, but when she came into our side she got on with everyone," said Inglewood captain Sam Burkhart.
"Her court play and presence on court were out of this world. She improved a lot this year . . . she just went from strength to strength. Her height helped big time, but she was also strong taking the ball through the court."
The Tura Sportswear Trophy for the junior player of the year went to Sacred Heart Girls' College senior A player Mairangi Tamati.
The age group representative players of the year were: Year 7, Nicole Moratti; year 8, Luci Kauradra; year 9, Danielle Dravitzki; under-15, Mairangi Tamati; under-17, Breya Boulton; under-19, Jamie Lee James. Kaponga's Rachael Gibbons was named Madge Cathro coach of the year, with Sacred Heart's Alex Reid winning the Mary Gyde umpire of the year title.
