Nikki Gore claims inaugural women's best and fairest

Tenacious midfielder Nikki Gore has been named South Adelaide's Women's Best and Fairest after a standout SANFLW campaign.

Despite being just 17 years old, Gore etched her name in the history books as the Panthers first senior women's best and fairest at the Club's inaugural medal count at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.

The hard-nosed on-baller finished the count on 101 votes, ahead of dashing defender Cheyenne Hammond (82) and physical utility Anne Hatchard (69).

 

 

Gore, who led the women's league in disposals at just shy of 20 touches per game, polled maximum votes from her coaches on three occasions during a purple patch between rounds three to six.

An ultra-consistent performer, the Christies Beach native received votes in eight or her nine games and finished 19 votes clear of Hammond despite missing two games throughout the season.

It caps of a successful season of accolades for Gore, who adds a best and fairest gong to her premiership medallion and Powerade Breakthrough Player Award.

Hammond was a worthy runner-up, polling votes in seven of her 11 games, including a best on ground performance in the Grand Final.

Meanwhile, Crows-listed Hatchard stormed home, named best on ground twice in the last four rounds and finishing third in the votes from just five games.

In other awards given on the night, Hammond also took out the Players' MVP as voted by her peers, while Elyse Haussen claimed the Coach's Award and Lisa Whiteley was named 'Most Ferocious'.

Courtney Gum edged out Jorja Rowe in the goalkicking race, claiming a one goal lead with her decisive set shot that regained the lead in the Grand Final.
