Recognising the cricketer who polls the highest number of votes cast by umpires in the West End 1st Grade competition, Drew was awarded 28 votes, five votes ahead of second-placed James Miller (East Torrens).
He amassed an impressive 545 runs from 12 matches in the West End 1st Grade competition, with a high score of 101 and an average of 41.92.
Proving handy with the ball also, Drew took 14 wickets at 21.07 with best bowling figures of 6/55 against Northern Districts in round 10.
Drew’s role was instrumental towards his side’s inclusion in the Grand Finals of all three formats; the West End 1st Grade (two-day) competition, the West End One Day Cup and the West End Twenty20 Cup.
He is the first West Torrens player to win the Bradman Medal since Paul Nobes in 1987/88 and he becomes the club’s seventh individual winner of the award.
The Karen Rolton Medal recognizes the female cricketer who polls the highest number of votes cast by umpires in the Websters Lawyers 1st Grade competition.
A 16-vote tie saw Lowe and Sampson take out top honours for the women, both being awarded their first ever Karen Rolton Medal for outstanding performances this season.
Taking 12 wickets in the one day competition at 4.50, Kensington captain Lowe has led her side strongly and into the Grand Final this weekend, as well as to overall victory in the Twenty20 competition on 5 March.
Lowe’s best bowling figures of 5/6 were against Port Adelaide in round nine, while the season saw her compile 134 runs, at an average of 44.67.
Port Adelaide’s Sampson managed 10 wickets across her eight matches played, at an average of 14.50 and achieving best figures of 4/27.
Collecting 104 runs across the season with an average of 17.33, Sampson will join her team to take on top-placed Kensington this weekend, with both teams fighting for Grand Final victory.
Both Lowe and Sampson are the second recipients for their respective clubs since the Medal’s inception in 2006/07.
Both winners earned 16 votes each, just one vote ahead of Port Adelaide’s Hannah Perry.
This year also marked the first time that a Women's Team of the Year was recognised, with SACA being one of the first state associations to pioneer this important initiative.
