VERSATILE netballer Amanda O’Neill will reach a special milestone when she runs on to the court for Eaglehawk on Saturday.

O’Neill will play her 150th senior game with the Hawks, 10 years after she first began playing with the club.

Eaglehawk netball co-ordinator Kylie Piercy said O’Neill is a dynamic mid-court player that could turn her hand at goaling when needed.

Piercy said she was a dedicated and pivotal member of the Eaglehawk Football Netball Club.

“She has had many accolades, since coming from Kangaroo Flat, but her crowning glory was winning the A-grade premiership in 2012, not only as a player, but as the coach, too,” she said.

One of O’Neill’s greatest achievements was when she won the Eaglehawk A-grade best and fairest award.

During her time at the club she has also coached the 17-and-under and B-grade teams, she was also a co-coach of the A-reserve team and has been a player and coach of the A-grade team.

In 2010 and 2012, O’Neill coached the B-grade team to a premiership.

She also was a part of the A-grade premiership in 2012.

“She has been honoured by being named BFNL Representative Netball coach and also in 2012 was named coach of the BFNL Team of the Year,” Piercy said.

Eaglehawk will face ladder-leaders Kangaroo Flat at Canterbury Park on Saturday afternoon.

The A-grade game will begin at 3.20pm.
