Last Saturday not only marked the return of Mid South East netball, Glencoe also celebrated Kate Sealey playing her 200th Senior game and 300th for the club.
Although she actually played the 300th in the last game of 2019, it was still worth celebrating after Sealey started her Murphies career in 1996. Since graduating to the Senior ranks, she has established herself as a prominent defensive player, well known throughout the League as a constant voice for her side and never say die attitude.
Sealey spent a season away from Glencoe in 2004 and also had time off in 2009 and 2014 due to having kids. Shee has been a member of the club’s committee over many years and also coached in 2009, 12, 18 and 19.
In recent years she has always been quick to raise her hand when umpiring or other duties around the club were needed to be filled. Highlights of Sealey’s career were receiving the League Best & Fairest for B Grade in 2006 and being a part of the 2010 A Reserve premiership side.
She has also claimed the A Reserve Best & Fairest Award for the Club in 2009, 13 and 15. This year Sealey is part of the B Reserve team, while the club also looks forward to watching her daughter Hallie climb through the ranks in the future.
