Oztaggers season comes to an end
JUNIOR Whitsunday Oztag players took to the oval at Cannonvale State School for the final round of fixtures for the season.
Following their last match, all the kids came together for a great game followed by the much-anticipated presentation. At the presentation all players were awarded with medallions to recognise them for their commitment to the sport throughout the season.
Outstanding players in each age group were then awarded trophies for most valuable player, highest try scorer and most improved. Competition organiser Leanne Knox said it was great to finish the season with little interruptions, after many of the opening rounds were cancelled due to grounds being unfit for play.
“I'm pleased we got to the end of the season without too many more cancelled games,” she said. “I was pleased with the player's enthusiasm.”
She said with 21 players sticking it out until the end, there were promising signs for the future.
“A lot of new players were trophy winners,” she said.
“I thought their skill development was excellent.
“I'm looking forward to an uninterrupted season in [late] 2011.
“Hopefully we can have a Whitsunday team for next year's state cup.”
