Jessica Verbrugge Wins Nola Marino Medal

Jessica Verbrugge has won the Nola Marino Medal, in a thrilling vote count, which came down to the very last vote.

Verbrugge credited her result to coach Peter Worsfold who was on hand at SWFL Headquarters to present the award, who has been a major influence not only on Jessica, but the whole team.   Verbrugge who only took up playing five years ago, became emotional in her acceptance speech where she thanked her team mates, the Donnybrook Club and the SWFL.

Bethany Bond finished second, polling in eight matches, while Ruby Mahony of Bunbury polled in nine matches to finish third in a very close count.

Verbrugge scored 7 best on ground results out of the eight matches Verbrugge polled in, the last being the difference between winning and potentially sharing the medal spoils.

The top five were from five different clubs separated by just seven votes.
