Deniliquin Rams club great Jodie Sefton has been honoured with having the A grade netball best and fairest medal named after her.
After joining the Rams in 1985, the former star shooter claimed the club’s best and fairest accolades a record nine times, in 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2004.
Sefton also played in seven premiership wins with the club - six as a playing-coach - including the Rams’ historic four-peat from 2002 to 2005.
She also carved her legacy at the Rams by winning back-to-back Murray Netball League best and fairest medals in 1990-91.
Sefton, who currently coaches the Rams’ A grade side, said naming the medal it was a tremendous honour for her.
‘‘I was stoked to be given such an honour,’’ she said.
‘‘My whole journey at the Rams has been a good experience and I’ve been lucky to see a lot of success.
‘‘Playing netball with the club has been an important part of my life.
‘‘It’s a nice touch and I would like to thank the club for making me feel so welcome here. It’s been an absolute pleasure.’’
The inaugural winner of the medal in Sefton’s name was star mid-courter/defender Amelia Seignior.
With Seignior also taking out the league best and fairest this year, Sefton couldn’t think of a better person to win the medal.
‘‘I was absolutely thrilled that Min (Seignior) was the inaugural winner,’’ she said.
‘‘She had a tremendous season and was a very deserving of the medal.’’
