RECOGNISED: Westlakes under-14s display the award from their runners-up placing at the 2014 Netball NSW Hunter State League.THE Westlakes District Netball Association’s (WDNA) 2014 representative presentation night is done and dusted.
The annual night recognised many people involved with all facets of WDNA, including officials, volunteers, umpires, coaches, players and sponsors.

This year, Westlakes achieved outstanding results in both the Netball NSW State League and the State Age Championships, along with commendable performances at local and Sydney-based carnivals.
Lake Macquarie City councillor Wendy Harrison, state MP Greg Piper and federal MP Pat Conroy attended the awards and presented awards.
Georgia Dodson and Sophie Bradbury from the Westlakes under-14s team took out the goal shooting award and Jenni Townsend, Belinda Wardley, Tara Culbert and Vicki Lewis all received outstanding volunteer awards.
The author was both honoured and humbled to be awarded the John Jarmain Memorial Shield, a perpetual award for commitment to representative netball.
The Westlakes twilight netball competition will kick off on Monday, October 13, and run for 10 weeks, finishing on Monday, December 15.
A full list of fees can be found on the WDNA website and Facebook page.
