Kelsie Rainbow has been recognised for her influential role towards the Tasmanian Magpies, scoring a historic ANL premiership this year.
The star midcourter was awarded player of the final series for efforts behind the team’s 66-57 semi-final win over Netball NSW Waratahs and 54-53 grand final win against Canberra Giants.
Rainbow, raised in Winnaleah, returned to her home state after three years in the Victorian Fury program.
Midcourters dominated the awards night on Thursday after Sharni Lambden was named the Tasmanian best and fairest award just ahead of Melissa Bragg.
Captain and goal attack Cody Lange went on to earn the coaches award from Kate Upton and Claire Dennis.
Upton reflected on the perfect end to the season.
“Everyone came together to achieve the same goal,” she proudly told supporters in Melbourne, who also attended the Collingwood Magpies Super Netball awards.
“We love the Tasmanian connection to this club.”
