Watkins Award (WAN)

The Watkins Award Night was started in 2011, when Alicia Guetteres started coaching the Seniors team.  The WAN is the Bronlow of Bentleigh Seniors and the first team agreed that whoever won the first year then the awared would be named after them.  Bianca Watkins won in 2011 and now the evening is known as the Watkins Award Night (WAN).  Each week 3, 2 & 1 votes are assigned by the Seniors coaches with the team member receiving the highest number of votes in the winner.   Traditionally the winner (runners up and second runners up) receive a sash presented at the Seniors social night known to everyone as "WAN".  The winner receives a trophy as well as the perpertual trophy for the year.   The Best Club Girl is voted by the team.
