28 July 2017

Temalisia Fakahokotau has been recognised as the Player of the Year at the Silvermoon Tactix Awards and Dinner held at Addington Raceway on Thursday night.

In her debut season for the franchise Fakahokotau was outstanding on defence and was ranked one of the best defensive interceptors and deflectors in the ANZ Premiership. She has also been rewarded for her hard work this season by earning a Silver Ferns Trial next week. 

Tem’s infectious, warm personality makes her a favourite amongst the members which saw her also pick up the Members’ Player of the Year award and Players’ Player of the Year. Ellie Bird was recognised as the Rookie of the Year after being elevated into the team mid way through the season.

Sophia Fenwick was recognised for her performances for the Hellers Mainland team, being awarded the Player of the Year. Sophia showed great leadership as captain of the Hellers Mainland team in leading them to the final of the BEKO National Netball League.
