Tiger wins medal in seven games

State netballer Brooke Allan says she has aspirations of returning to the Colac Tigers in 2019 after capping off a stunning year by claiming the club’s best-and-fairest award.

Allan remarkably took out the honour despite missing the opening 11 games due to commitments with Australian Netball League club Victorian Fury and state league matches with the Geelong Cougars.

The 19-year-old stormed home to pip older sister Kara after Brooke registered five best-on-court performances and a two-vote game to finish with 20 votes from seven games.

Versatile goaler Kara finished runner-up with 18 votes ahead of utility Georgie Finn, who finished third with 16 votes.

Kara and Brooke returned to their junior club in 2018 after spending last season at Geelong West and the sisters almost helped Colac to a finals berth under second-year co-coaches Sara Hay and Hope Carmody.

Brooke said she was eager to play at Tigerland again next year if her busy netball schedule allowed her to.
