HIGHLY-RATED utility Sophie Barr helped Deakin University finish its WDFNL A grade netball season on a high.
Barr played roles at both ends of the court as the Sharks posted their fifth win of the season against Allansford.
The former North Warr-nambool Eagle started at goal defence and finished with 10 goals when shifted into attack in the 68-24 win at Allansford.
Coach Nicole Richie said Barr's presence in the side "made a big difference". She said the Sharks had a spread of contributors, helping them reverse a five-goal defeat to the Cats in round one.
"It was good. Everyone played well," Richie said.
The last game, everyone just enjoyed themselves.
"Over the year we've definitely improved.
"Because we're all pretty good friends, that helps.
Goal shooter Jacinta Wareham, 30 goals, and midcourter Liz Fowler were also named among the Sharks' best.
Sasha Grace scored 15 goals for the Cats to be in their best with goal defence Leaha Thornton and goal keeper Steph King.
Richie announced post-match she would step down from the coaching job.
She said the netball ranks like the footballers had benefited from having Deakin University students and Mortlake residents don the Sharks uniform.
