A look back at Fraser Coast netball in 2015

BAY BULLETS reigned supreme as an era of representative netball came to a close.

The year will be remembered as one Bullets Boscia dominated, though when it came to grand final day the team struggled to start.

That was mainly down to the blustery conditions, though Bullets adapted quicker than Fraser Flames and went on with the job.

They won comfortably to the tune of 36-20 thanks to Lauren Mortimer, Anna Anderson and the club's senior player of the year Katie Brown.

Even though Bullets dominated Division 1 the spoils were shared across the clubs after all grades were decided.

Cosmos finished the year with four premierships (Divs 5, 6, 8 and 9), while Bullets won Divs 7 and 10 as well.

Flames Vixens won the Div 2 crown.

Hervey Bay will be represented in the Wide Bay Thundercats by new faces next year after Brown and State Netball League Division 2 player of the year Nikki Jones relocated.

Tayla Ellis and Tiaro's Jade Henry are the only Fraser Coast players to be included in the Thundercats' 2016 squad, which will be the first time it is played in the new format.

In 2015 all teams played each other at least once, but the new format will see the teams split into city and country pools.

Wide Bay will join Capricorn Claws, Whitsunday Sharks, Magnetic North Steelcats and Marlin Coast Marlins in the country pool, with the winner to progress to the finals where they will meet the metropolitan teams.

They play their first game on January 30-31.
