Jono Boult was presented with the Bay of Plenty Cricket 2017/18 Player of the Year Award at the annual Bay of Plenty Cricket prizegiving.
Bay of Plenty player number 467 made his senior men's debut in February 2004. This season Boult finished second on the batting list with 294 runs and headed the bowling stakes with 23 wickets. Boult also captained the Bay of Plenty Twenty20 team at the annual Northern Districts one-day tournament.
Kane Williamson was awarded the Bay of Plenty First Class Player of the Year. The accolades continue to flow for the Black Cap Captain, with a record 18th New Zealand test century and leading the Black Caps to a rare series win over England in the last couple of weeks.
A trio of players received trophies that recognised the achievements of three former high profile Bay of Plenty players. The Mike Wright Batting prize was won by Joe Carter with 334 runs, Boult winning the Derek Beard Bowling Trophy and teenager Tim Pringle the Brendan Bracewell Most Promising Player award.
Bay of Plenty Development batting honours went to two Tauranga Boys' College First XI players. Ben Pomare won the batting trophy with 117 runs and Dominic Crombie the bowling trophy taking seven wickets, which included a hat-trick against Hamilton.
Special trophies for representative centuries and five wickets bags were awarded to Joe Carter and Stephen Crossan, who both posted three-figure scores during the representative season, and Sean Davey taking a five-wicket haul.
The Baywide Premier Hart Family Trophy (Baywide Champion of Champions) was presented to Otumoetai Cadets, who won the Baywide Cup and finished second in the Baywide T20 and Williams Cup competitions.
