Blue Ribbon Spirit of Football and Netball Award winners


The round 13 winner of the Spirit of Netball Award is Southern Mallee Giants U/17 netballer Trinity Jonasson.  

Trinity started her netball career at Warracknabeal before playing for Beulah in the now-defunct Mallee League and now plays for the Southern Mallee Giants in the 17 Unders.

This is her first season in the 17s and her game continues to grow each week.

Trinity plays in defence and has a long reach. She intercepts and reads the ball well and is a wonderful asset to the team.

She is always looking for ways to improve her game and sets herself weekly goals.

The round 14 winner of the Spirit of Football Award is Laharum U/17 footballer, Joshua Haby.

Josh has played 136 junior (U/14 and U17) games for Laharum Football Netball Club. Some of those were finals games for our club.

He is very keen and works hard to improve week in week out, and his continued improvement will one day soon see him playing senior football with the Demons.

Josh puts in on the ground and off the ground helping when and where he can. 

Congratulations Trinity and Josh.


Dimboola  U/17 footballer Sam Hennessy is the round 13 winner of the Spirit of Football Award for the 2017 Wimmera Football League season.

Sammy has been playing with Dimboola for a few years now and has shown a great passion for his footy and his footy club.

During the season Sam has developed into a good young man and a leader. He has really improved his attitude and application to footy this year proven by winning the Spirit of Football Award.

Well done Sam. Keep up the good work you've been putting in as it will definitely help you in the future. 

Congratulations Sammy from the Dimboola Football Netball Club.


Minyip Murtoa 17&U netballer Rose Sleep is Round 13’s winner of the Wimmera League/ Blue Ribbon Foundation Spirit of Netball Award. 

Rose was a new face at Minyip-Murtoa at the start of this season and it's been a privilege having her represent our club.

While she's not the loudest or showiest on the court, Rose does her role and ably assists her teammates. It's been wonderful to see her grow – in both her playing ability and skill level.

Her standout game in round 13 that gained her this award demonstrated just what a well-rounded player she is and it's a joy to watch her play.

Congratulations Rose from the Minyip Murtoa Football Netball Club.
