Star Wodonga goal attack Rebecca Cameron (nee Smedley) will be the fourth netballer to be inducted into the Ovens and Murray Hall of Fame next month.
Cameron played 352 games for the Bulldogs in a decorated career.
The 2002 Toni Wilson Medallist won her first premiership with Wodonga in the same year and played in a second in 2015 - her final season in the Ovens and Murray.
Cameron missed the Bulldogs' 2004 premiership against Myrtleford after requiring a knee reconstruction, but still managed to finish equal second in the Toni Wilson Medal count that year.
She was runner-up in the league's best and fairest award on a further two occasions - in 2000 to fellow Ovens and Murray Hall of Fame inductee Tracy Gillies, and again in 2015 to Yarrawonga's Laura Irvine (Bourke).
She was the first Wodonga netballer to reach 300 games when she achieved the milestone in 2013.
The Wodonga life member won nine club best and fairests, represented the Ovens and Murray and was the first netballer to become a life member of the Ovens and Murray.
She also featured in the Ovens and Murray team of the last 25 years announced earlier this year.
Cameron and her sister and coach Kelli Moylan - who led the Bulldogs to premiership success, combined for 14 club best and fairests.

She was blown away to join Gillies, Lindy Singleton (Burgess) and Paula Cary as the fourth netballer in the Hall of Fame.
"It's all a bit surreal," she said.
"When Ron (Ovens and Murray Hall of Fame chairman Ron Montgomery) came into work and told me, I was a little bit shocked and somewhat embarrassed.
"It's something you certainly don't ever expect to be in and I certainly hadn't thought about it to be honest.
"I'm very humbled and certainly very honoured to be selected to go into the Hall of Fame.
"The likes of Tracy Gillies, Paula Cary and Lindy Singleton (Burgess) who have gone in, when I started Ovens and Murray their names were huge.
"Obviously throughout their careers they were big names and great players.
"For my name to go up there and be alongside theirs is very overwhelming for me."
When she was told the news of her induction by Montgomery, Cameron began to reflect on her time at the Bulldogs, which is littered with highlights.
"I've got so many great memories," she said.
"I've been very fortunate to have played at such a successful club.
"I don't think there was many years I played where I didn't play in finals.
"I've been fortunate enough to have played with fantastic players and lucky enough to win premierships.
"I'm very grateful for my time there."
When she first started playing in the top grade, Cary was among her toughest opponents, but the latter part of her career was dominated by the rivalry with Yarrawonga.
"Paula Cary was always something you'd think 'oh god, I'm rocking up against one of the toughest players in the league'," Cameron said.
"Fiona Boyer was another one and as I got older, Kylie Tyrell I would consider my toughest opponent.
"She was physically tough, she was very athletic and very clever.
"I think she knew what I was doing before I did it.
"That was just Yarrawonga as a whole, they were a very clever team and did their homework.
"There's heaps of players, but definitely Kylie Tyrell will be up there for me."
After more than 15 years in A-grade, Cameron saw a huge shift in the way the game was played.
"It's changed immensely, it's a lot quicker now and it's not so good when you get older because it's harder to keep up with those younger ones," she added.
"After I finished at Wodonga, I had a year off.
"I had a lot of injuries, so the body needed a bit of a break.
"I was still around the club a bit, trained with them a little bit as well and helped out where I could.
"I spent the last two years out at Kiewa with my husband (Leigh), because he plays out there."
Montgomery is looking forward to unveiling six new inductees, including Cameron, in what will the 15th year of the Hall of Fame.
Myrtleford's Jimmy Deane will be another.
"Deane played 78 games at Myrtleford, coached them for four years, won two Morris Medals and was a regular Ovens and Murray representative," Montgomery said.
"He represented the Richmond Football Club, but had an illustrious career in Adelaide as a player, coach and also in the media.
"He was inducted into the AFL Hall of Fame this year, but certainly you go to Myrtleford and speak to the older people and they're just in awe of what he achieved up there."
This year's four remaining inductees will be revealed at the annual Hall of Fame dinner on Wednesday, July 10, at Albury's SS and A Club.
Tickets can be purchased through the football clubs or at the O and M office.
