The Eden Whalers were not short of accolades during the Sapphire Coast AFL yearly presentation recently. 

Despite a dominance by northern teams the Bermagui Breakers and the Narooma Lions in a majority of the stakes, Eden laid claim to some of the key honours as the women’s team goes to their third straight grand final this weekend. 

Goal kicking prodigy Kamilla Grubesic was one of the first women to be honoured, named the leading goal kicker in the league with 68 majors this season. 

A key not official Jarrod Moore said was Kamilla’s efforts were the strongest of any grade, outscoring every other player in the league.

The Whalers forward was also recognised at fourth place on the overall best and fairest count, with the title going to Bermagui young gun Jorja Moore by a single vote in the final round from joint runners-up Zalie Betts and Cymmon Parker. 

The Whalers also featured heavily in the selected SCAFL Women’s team of the Year, while Shane Crowe was dubbed Women’s Coach of the Year.

The Rookie of the Year was Merimbula youngster Caleb Higgins.

The club congratulated everyone who took out awards on the night.
