Netball honours its best

Local netball has reached its close and will award its brightest stars.

Tomorrow night will see the annual awards ceremony for the Cayman Islands Netball Association. Truman Bodden Sports Complex will be the site for all the glamour from 6pm.

Among the awards being presented on the night will be Netballer of the Year, Most Improved Team and Most Disciplined Team.

Other festivities on the evening include dinner and random prizes.

Each award is slated to have two nominees. Names of candidates were submitted by the various clubs on Saturday.

CINA President Lucille Seymour said the season was a colourful one.

‘The season went extremely well. Especially as Cathedral Club of the UK came and coached the junior netballers from the schools and played competitively with the seniors. Additionally, CINA organized a mixed league which was quite popular.

‘I have great admiration for the players who on their own humble and quiet way led the charge in a very well contested season. They truly endeavour to display excellent talent and great competitive spirit.’

Seymour went on to say this season has shown the value of volunteers in keeping the sport alive.

‘Genuine applause must go to all of the volunteers, be it coaches, umpires, scorers and administrators, who without fail commit themselves to the youth in sport and genuinely wish netball to progress.

‘Through this medium CINA wishes to offer gratitude to Norma Ferryman and the other teachers who have given countless hours after school to keep this game a float.’

Joel Francis, Officer of Youth and Sports, will be in attendance. Minister of Sports Alden McLaughlin reinstated the government grant to the Netball Association of $40,000.
