Liz Watson has been awarded DonateLife’s ‘Most Courageous Award’ following Lightning’s narrow three-goal loss to the Melbourne Vixens on Saturday night.

The Organ and Tissue Authority see courage every day, with people choosing generosity in donating their organs, or for recipients who need a lifesaving transplant.

The award was given to the player who demonstrates a ‘never give up’ attitude, looks out for their teammates, and shows courage both on and off the court.

Lightning Head Coach Belinda Reynolds spoke highly of Watson, who finished the Round 10 match on 115.5 Nissan Net Points, 41 feeds and 35 centre pass receives.

“This award goes to someone who continuously puts her body on the line for this team, she continuously encourages her teammates and radiates positivity,” she said.

“This player has a kind heart, a fierce mind and a brave spirit.

“She certainly built the stats for us over the night and only had one error to her name, so a really consistent performance as well.”

In Lightning’s fourth year of partnership with DonateLife, this award aims to celebrate the act of courage to promote Members and fans to rally around the cause and sign up to be a donor.

It takes one minute to register, and all you need is your phone and Medicare card.
