Decembers ‘Mention of the Month’ – sponsored by Physis Ltd. – is awarded to Lois McConville.
Lois has attended all but a few training sessions to lead and support others, but what makes her hard work more inspirational is that all of this takes place despite of her ACL injury from Sapphire Series in January.
Despite unable to train herself she turns up rain or shine, assisting others in theory and techniques, and also works effortlessly week in and out as part of her presidency role.
This month Lois also drove to the first round of Sapphire Series – missing on the Valkyrie fun bus! – in case of any injuries. Not only this, but she lead on the organisation of our first home tournament and ensuring all were welcome to the event.
In addition, she was the loudest person on the sideline throughout both tournament dates – shouting and singing words of encouragement. When you have a small sideline (especially when all the team are playing non-stop on the field) it really makes a difference on the sideline when you can hear her voice through the wind and rain.
This is why we award her with of her support, organisation, and heart!
