With another MCDFNL grand final day in the rear view mirror, and Natte Bealiba successful in stopping Carisbrook's attempt at a senior premiership three-peat, Navarre can look back on another successful, if at times frustrating season of football.
The Gasshoppers celebrated ultimate success in the Under 11.5s winning their first premiership in only their third year of competition. They progressed from winning four games in their first season, to seven wins last year before finishing third after this home and away season with 13 wins.
Led by a stellar season from Will Moloney, who finishing fourth in league best and fairest voting, the team excelled in September and capped a remarkable season of improvement.
In the Under 14.5's competition, Navarre returned to the field after a two-year hiatus to play out a successful year, progressing and growing their group of young talent, which will next year be buoyed by the inclusion of talent from the all-conquering Under 11.5 side.
The Under 17.5 grasshoppers meanwhile enjoyed a solid year of improvement, progressing up to finish in sixth on the ladder and enjoying a strong finals campaign.
Led by a group of emerging young leaders - headed by Dallas Flannagan, who finished top 10 in league best and fairest voting - they recorded a strong win in the first week of the finals, before turning out a commendable and competitive performance against minor premier Trentham in week two.
For Navarre's reserve side, it was a case of what might have been.
Hamstrung by a constant stream of injuries in the senior team, they were faced with a changing team sheet which prevented them from pushing ahead with any consistency.
Led by a strong season from veteran Luke Bibby, they continually competed and can be pleased with the five solid wins they turned in throughout a frustrating season.
Navarre's senior team could be forgiven for asking what they did to the football gods.
A revolving door to the trainer's room saw them consistently hit the field without 8 to 10 of their best 22.
After a positive start to the season, the dam wall eventually broke and they found themselves in the unfamiliar position of missing finals.
Among the frustration however, positive signs always seem to emerge, and the Grasshoppers were able to blood a number of promising young players.
Add to that a strong season from first year assistant coach Jake Robinson, a successful return from Ash Driscoll after a season ending knee injury in 2018, and a stellar year from Bill Parry who finally shook off the wretched injury luck that has dogged him over past seasons, and the signs for the Grasshoppers heading into 2019 are positive.
