2019 Macca’s Team Award Winners

Our Macca’s Thomson and Whelan Trophy teams have started handing out awards

All of our Thomson and Whelan Trophy teams have chosen awards winners to be recognised from their teams.

These awards could be for “Team MVP”, “Services to Basketball” or another reason that deserves recognition (if able, we will note the specific award if it is not Team MVP).

Photos of the recipients can be seen on our facebook page album here, and will be updated as more of the commemorative singlets are presented.
