“She is a proven championship winner and backed that up with another fine campaign in 2020.
“Sarah has a fantastic relationship with Maddy Turner in defence and with another great Aussie talent in Lauren Moore coming through too. I know she’ll have a very strong team around her as she looks to take her game up another level in 2021.
“She is just out of Diamonds camp after a gruelling Super Netball hub in Queensland so I hope she takes the next few months to get some much-needed down time before we ramp up for pre-season early in the new year.”
Klau would break the run of Wallace as Swifts MVP, with the latter winning in 2018 and 2019. But she would have her name up in lights again, sharing the Coaches Award with Paige Hadley, who was also voted Members’ Player of the Year for the second year in succession.
In the other awards, Sophie Garbin won Players’ Player of Year Award, while long-serving team performance analyst Bjorn Maddern was named the Club Person of the Year. Swifts Academy player Leilani Rohweder was awarded the Marj Groves AM Scholarship.
