LEADING Ovens and Murray identity Paula Cary has stepped down as chairwoman of the netball sub-committee after more than a decade at the helm.
Cary, who has been involved with the league as a player since its inception in 1993, was replaced in the top position by Lavington’s Tamara Mathews at the league’s annual general meeting.
Umpire Jarrod Hibberson has joined the sub-committee.
Mathews said yesterday Cary had been an outstanding servant of the league.
“Paula has done a fantastic job,” Mathews said yesterday.
“I’m sure she won’t be too far away.”
Cary started playing in the Ovens and Murray for North Albury in 1993 and went on to play 303 A grade matches and play in premierships in 1996, 1999, 2007 and 2008.
She won best and fairests in 2000 and 2001.
Cary has also been involved in coaching at club and league level and took over as the league’s netball chairperson from Toni Wilson in 2002.
Mathews has held a variety of positions at Lavington including netball president and coaching roles and served as the league’s representative team co-ordinator this year.
