FACILITIES at Pigeon Park were finally put to use on Friday night for the Heathcote Football and Netball Club presentation night.
It was the first function held at the facilities since the redevelopment.
But the star of the night was midfielder/half-forward Jake Condon who capped off an incredible year with the Saints to claim back-to-back senior best and fairests in the 2017 club vote count.
Condon has played his whole career at Heathcote and had quite the successful junior track record, taking out the league’s under 17 best and fairest award, before making his senior debut in 2010 — the same year he also won the league rising star award.
And Condon wasn’t the only back-to-back award winner on the night, with Tanya O’Halloran claiming her second A grade best and fairest in as many years.
The experienced defender was a consistent performer in the A grade side despite the team experiencing a difficult season.
Tayla Edsall-French came runner-up in the award while Tara Sheridan received the coach’s award.
Darcy McLean finished as runner-up senior best and fairest after being named in the bests on nine occasions throughout the season and also took out the coach’s award.
Other awards went to Dylan McCutcheon for most consistent and Alex McIvor for most improved senior footballer.
In the reserves, Luke and Pat Ring were the highest in the vote count to be awarded best and fairest and runner-up respectively.
Nick Tobin received the coach’s award and was also presented with this year’s memorial award while Jordan Formosa was most consistent in the reserves.
Dylan Davies was awarded the under 17 best and fairest ahead of Flynn Pianta-Cook as runner-up with Jye Formosa the most consistent, Lachie Freeman-Taber most determined and Jordan Marcroft got the coach’s award.
A reserve netball award winners were Krystal Sheridan as the best and fairest with Kristy Clouston runner-up and Kris Fitzpatrick taking out the coach’s award.
Tallula Galea took the B grade honours followed by Ebony Whiley as runner-up best and fairest while Amy Johnstone claimed the coach’s award.
B reserve best and fairest fell the way of Ash Sharp, Hannah Gross came runner-up, coach’s award went to Grace Paisley and Katie Scattolin was awarded best player in the finals.
B reserve’s Kayla Melling took home the award for most improved senior netball with 15 and under player Alaysha Biagioni receiving the honours in the junior netball awards.
D primary’s coach’s award went to young Tahlia Anderson for her efforts and improvement this year with Roxy Jorgensen-Neave receiving the lightning premiership award.
Makenzie Brown took out the best and fairest award in the 15 and under netball grade with Hayley Cox the runner-up and Marisa McNutt receiving the coach’s award.
Deni Edwards was best and fairest in the 17 and under side and Caitlin Goss came in at runner-up with coach’s award going to Elizabeth Butler.
Georgia’s memorial award was presented to 17 and under player Paris Morgan.
