Nigel Hunt and Alana King have taken out the 2019-20 Jukes and Calvert Medals.
Congratulations to all recipients of awards for the 2019-20 season.
Alana King capped off an outstanding year to dominate the Julie Calvert Medal. Her 820 points was 90 points clear of second-placed Emma Inglis (730) who was also well ahead of third-placed Stere Kalis on 639. Lauren Innes came in fourth on 620 points and Robine Rijke fifth on 565 points.
Alana contributed consistently with bat and ball across the season, scoring 239 runs at 21.7 off the bat and taking an outstanding 34 wickets at 12.03 with her leg breaks. Her best bowling of 5/8 in the second of two T20 matches against Dandenong capped off a day in which she finished with 9/28 from her 8 overs.
The 24 year old also took out the Karen Brown Trophy for Women's First Eleven bowling and became a member of the Cricket Victoria 200 Club during the season.
The DWN Jukes Medal for Men's Club Champion was a closer affair but Nigel Hunt (648) was still a clear 39 point winner over second-placed Matt Wilcox (609). Adam Bull was third with 593 points, Nick Blaich fourth on 587 and last year's medalist Stephen Seymour in fifth on 581 points.
With three 5-wicket hauls, including 11/43 across two innings (6/24 and 5/19) against Melbourne University, Nigel Hunt had a stellar year. His 36 wickets at 15.2 earns him the honour of leading wicket-taker across all grades. Nigel has also been awarded the AA Horneman Memorial Ward as the best clubman from the playing group for his off-field contributions to club events and communications.
The Dav Whatmore Trophy for Men's First Eleven Batting goes to James Billington for his 542 runs at 41.69 while Stephen Seymour's 16 wickets at 16.50 earns him the Bryce McGain Trophy for Men's First Eleven Bowling.
