HOCKEY HANDS OUT 2018 HONOURS
It was a happy birthday for Marist hockey star Keegan Schoultz on Sunday, with the 22year-old joining a list of family sporting achievements to share with his mother Mel and father Fritz.
Schoultz polled 30 votes at the South West Hockey League’s medal count to win the Scott Medal nine votes ahead of Boyanup runner-up Kane Wetherell.
The talented Marist player took his game up a level in 2018 after claiming the A2 grade fairest and best last season.
Adding to the Boyanup success was Allyce Sewell, who won her second Marie Cross fairest and best medal, polling 43 votes.
Runner up was Bronte Price on 33 votes.
