Sean Aaron named Lacrosse Victoria Best & Fairest

Sean anchored our defensive line, allowing only 126 goals in 18 games (or 7 goals per game) - fewest in the competition.  Capping a great year between the pipes, Sean was named last Friday as Lacrosse Victoria Best & Fairest for 2017!

This is the 2nd year in a row where a Camberwell Lacrosse Club state league player is named league best & fairest (last year it was Joel Easson).

Way to go Seany!!!
