Seagals win premierships

PREMIERS: Barwon Heads Under 15 Division 1 defeated Lara in the grand final.

Barwon Heads won the Under 15 Division 1 grand final against the previously unbeaten Lara.

The Seagals finished fourth on the ladder and then had an almost perfect finals campaign, culminating in a strong win on grand final day.

Barwon Heads held on to win by four points, 6.6.42 to 6.2.38 with Poppy Johnston best afield with two goals.

Grace Purcell, Amelie Parfitt, Charlotte Leibhardt, Johanna Sunderland and Ginger Smith were also excellent player on the day.

The coaches have had a difficult year trying to manage low numbers, due to fielding two under 15 female teams as well as juggling injuries, not to mention the all-important holidays.

Other than winning the grand final, highlights for the year were nine of the Division 1 girls being chosen for the 2019 Geelong Cats squad and Ruby Fry, playing in the grand final just six days after finger surgery.

Adam Fry and assistant coaches Trev Harris and Luke Wood, were proud of the team.

Barwon Heads Under 18 Division 2 side also claimed a premiership, thrashing 6.3.39 to 1.0.6.

Kya Marshall was named best afield while Rosie Tunn McGrath, Grace Cotter, Maddison Reid and Heidi Diehm were superb.

Caprise Gitsham booted three goals and Jessica Barry snagged two.
