Echuca Football Club’s Kiara Cooper reigned supreme at the Shepparton and District Football League’s night of nights, sharing the Youth Girls’ best and fairest award.
The midfielder won the top gong alongside Kyabram’s Reni Hicks with 10 votes at the league’s presentation dinner on Monday night.
Shepp Notre’s Alana Cuthbert was runner-up on nine votes.
The medal capped off a great season for Cooper, with representative honours rewarding superb performances for Echuca’s all-conquering Youth Girls outfit.
Both medal winners will square off on Sunday in the SDJFL Youth Girls grand final at Shepparton’s Deakin Reserve.
