More than 130 people gathered at Borden Pavilion on Sunday to celebrate outstanding individual performances across the 2023 season of Ongerp’s hockey, netball and football competitions. Players, coaches and committee members across the Ongerup Association Sport were dressed to impress at the awards ceremony. The Ganzer Medal, named after Les Ganzer, is awarded to the best-and-fairest player of the Ongerup Football Association. Marking 60 years since his grandfather Colin Ganzer won the inaugural medal, Jerramungup’s Jayden Brooks was crowned the best player of the competition finishing with 39 votes, five ahead of Newdegate’s Dean Rintoul in second. Earlier, Ongerup Hockey Association kicked off the afternoon with Lake Grace-Pingrup’s Tayah Medlen taking out the A-grade best-and-fairest trophy. Donna Skerris, also from Lake Grace-Pingrup, was awarded an association life membership for her services to the league for the past 30 years. Ongerup Netball Association president Chloe McDougall then presented their competition awards, where Gnowangerup’s Harriet Addis and Newdegate’s Melita Davies tied for the A-grade player of the year trophy after each polling 40 votes. The day was facilitated by the Borden Pavilion committee and patrons enjoyed catered meals and flowing drinks to celebrate the season heading into finals.
