Barbara Hawgood Award

This trophy was first awarded in 2005 in memory of Barbara Hawgood. Barbara was involved in netball from 1984, the first year her daughter commenced netball. Her initial involvement was at a club level but she subsequently became a member of the Downey Park committee as Junior Registrar and served in that position for a period of eight years. As well, she was a team manager for many teams at club, association, and state level. In all her activities she was always prepared to go the extra mile to assist in whatever capacity was required. The last two and a half years of Barbara’s life were a challenging time for her, but her positive outlook on life and her optimism were there for all to see and she continued her involvement in club, association, and state level in spite of her difficulties until six months before her death.
