Jerilderie players dominated the Picola & District Football Netball League’s junior presentation night at Tocumwal on Monday.

The club had five trophy winners in three different grades, including a clean sweep in the under-17s and under-13s netball.

Rising young star James Gregory was the Demons’ hero as far as football was concerned, with the midfielder named thirds best and fairest.

Gregory, who played all 16 games as well as 13 in the seniors, reinforced Jerilderie’s recent stranglehold on the thirds trophy, with Lachie Leeds (2013) and Blair Henery (2012) having won the last two titles.

Runner-up in the thirds vote count was a tie between Mathoura’s Bryce Bish and Picola United’s Blake Jorgensen.

Jorgensen’s younger brother Adam took out the fourths best and fairest title ahead of Deni Rovers goalkicker Blair Sartore.

In the netball, Jerilderie’s Kiara Keating was named under-17s best and fairest with teammate Paige Nash the runner-up.

The same feat was achieved in under-13s, with Jerilderie’s Isobel Bradford winning the top award ahead of Elouise Barlow.

Other Jerilderie youngsters who polled were Bohdi Beasley in fourths footy and Phoebe Aitkin in under-15s netball.
