Nauopo rewarded for stellar season with the Magic

2:32 pm on 26 July 2012

Julianna Nauopo who helped the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Magic to their historic ANZ netball championship win, has won the Best Young Player award for the season.

Nauopo played off-sider to Irene van Dyk for the meteoric 12 match-winning streak that took them through to the title.

Sitting just outside the top 10 goal scorers in the competition (334 goals from 446 attempts, 74.9%), the energetic goal attack also took 298 centre pass receives, just third behind first place Madison Browne.
