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.
Echuca is poised to win back-to-back premierships after another flawless season.

Alyx Glanville, Tori-Lee Coatsworth and Sophie Douglas (11 goals) will form a dangerous trio at the other end.
But one of the key playmakers will be Cooper, whose talents have extended beyond the Murray Bombers’ midfield with 20 goals for the season.
