Pickert picks up top award
Horsham Hornets’ Tim Pickert capped off a stellar 2017-18 Country Basketball League season by claiming the club’s most valuable player accolade.
Pickert was earlier this month named the league MVP and was also the northwest conference’s highest scorer.
The Hornets enjoyed a great first season in the new conference, dropping only one match on their way to the title.
Pickert claimed the MVP award ahead of Matt Lovel, with coach Cam Bruce third. Jeremiah Mckenzie collected the Graham Adams Memorial Award.
Georgia Hiscock won the Lady Hornets MVP award, Caitlin Story earned runner-up honours and Olivia Jones was third. Jess Cannane picked up the coaches award.
The Lady Hornets also had a great year, finishing on top of the ladder with only one loss, but fell short of Bendigo in the grand final.
