Congratulations to Michael “Vegas” Stewart and Sharni “Sharkbait” Webb on respectively being selected in the 2014 QAFL and QWAFL teams of the year at last night’s J. A. Grogan Medal night at the Gabba.
Vegas was a consistent performer for UQ in their inaugural year in the QAFL, providing much needed experience to the young student side. Although ineligible for the Grogan Medal due to an early season indiscretion, Michael picked up a number of votes in the main count to go along with his team of the year selection.
On the ladies side of things, despite only playing about half of the season, Red Lioness playing-assistant Sharni took home two medals from the night – one for her team of the year selection, and the other being the prestigious Jo Butland Medal for Queensland’s best player in female representative matches.
