Maddie Garrick has capped off a stellar first season with the Deakin Melbourne Boomers by claiming the club’s prestigious Michele Timms MVP award. Garrick enjoyed an increased role this season, her first with the Boomers, and produced career-best numbers across the board, quickly establishing herself as a crowd favourite.
Other award winners presented at the team’s final break-up held at Knox Groove Train, included Shanae Greaves (Most Improved Player and Players’ Player awards) and Chloe Molloy (Coach’s Award).
“All three players were worthy winners and it was great to see them recognised,” said Boomers GM, Justin Nelson.
“Maddie really grasped her opportunity this season and I know everyone within the Boomers family is very proud of her. Equally, it was fantastic to see Shanae rewarded, her rise from a development player three years ago highlights the player pathway we have at the Boomers.”
“That player pathway was again evident with Chloe winning the Coach’s Award. Probably the most asked question we get at the club is about Coach Guy Molloy’s daughter, Chloe, which we always have a chuckle about given they are no relation,” added Nelson.
The Boomers have now officially entered the off-season and look forward to providing updates in the near future on memberships and corporate opportunities for season 2016/17.
