The final awards to be presented were the Lacrosse Victoria Special Awards.

Sporting Act of the Year Stephen Weissbacker, Moreland Lacrosse Club

Nominated by MCC for his treatment of one of their players who was injured in the S/L game on Saturday 22nd July. His diligence, care and compassion to Travis for over half an hour was very much appreciated by the club. Stephen demonstrated the values of great sportsmanship which spanned across club lines. He reassured Travis that assistance was on its way and in the meantime helped minimize the movement and discomfort that was evident due to the injury.

Coach of the Year Max Madonia, Footscray Lacrosse Club

Max coached the Victorian Senior Men’s team to the National title in June, and also coached the Footscray State League Men’s team to an undefeated home & away season.
