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.

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.
