Melbourne Softball congratulates all those who were recognised for their achievements at the recent Softball Victoria annual State Dinner.
The event highlights achievements of members of the Victorian softball community in all aspects of our sport.
We particularly congratulate ANGELA BROADBENT who was presented with the Merle Short Service Award for service to softball at Werribee and more recently to Victoria. Angela was also awarded the Margo Koskelainen Umpire of the Year for her service to the Victorian Umpiring Committee and umpiring in general. Angela is a member of our Metro League umpire crew, as is TOBY SADLER who was awarded the John Lartner Umpire Development award.
Also receiving the Merle Short Service Award was Grant Rice from Werribee who can be seen on the slowpitch diamonds playing for Red Devils.
Congratulations to all state team players and officials who represented Victoria at National events, more so those who have been members of our Fawkner Park community…Gemma Hamilton, Georgia O’Donovan, Narisse Privitera, Gabrielle Misfud, Alys Young and current members Caitlin Laird, Natasha Holt, Kerry Laird and Allan Laird.
