Chinchilla Bears and Honeybears season reaches full time
Described as the glue that holds the team together, Chinchilla Honeybears footballer Jess Bolewski stood up this season when her team needed her the most.
On Saturday night Football Chinchilla held its presentation evening, which was a time to reflect on the 2019 season and recognise those players who really made a difference.
Bolewski was fortunate enough to come away with the most impressive of accolade of the night, the best and fairest award.
Her coach Tim Taylor thought she was highly deserving.
"I think she has had a very successful season on her part and played really well,” he said.
"When times were tough and the girls were struggling, it was her who guided the younger players.
"She helped them achieve what they did.”
However Bolewski couldn't have done it without her fellow teammates, who were also recognised on the night.
Sally Carroll received the players player award, Jess's sister Megan was named the most Improved player and the most Promising Young Talent title went to Rhea Capilli.
When looking over the season, coach Tim Taylor would use the word inconsistent to explain it.
"We didn't finish as high on the ladder as what we probably should have,” he said.
"At points throughout the season we found it very difficult to get 11 players of field in back to back games and simply just dropped too many points when we probably shouldn't have.
"But I'm proud of the girls and all they have achieved.”
The girl have now earned themselves a break and some much needed time off before they start planning for next year.
