As your tireless 2012 Club Championships Women’s Division correspondent, my work is not yet done. I’ve put together some lists of the best players, teams, games, and other superlatives from the Women’s Division this year.

Best upwind throwers

With upwind goals at a premium, the most important players to have on your side were players with big upwind hucks or very solid upwind breaks. These throwers made converting upwind points much easier for their teams:

Alex Snyder (Fury), Anne Mercier (Capitals), Bex Forth (Showdown), Rohre Titcomb (Riot), Angela Lin (Ozone)

Best downwind throwers

Alyssa Weatherford (Riot), Leila Tunnell (Phoenix), Kira Frew (Traffic), Jenny Fey (Scandal), Katherine Wooten (Ozone)

Best receivers

Sarah Griffith (Riot), Catherine Hui (Traffic), Calise Cardenas (Riot), Manisha Daryani (Fury), Kate Craley (Riot), Lane Siedor (Ozone)

Fury, Riot, Molly Brown
