FEDERAL midfielder Tom McKimmie won the first best and fairest of his career when he took out the Upper Murray league medal on Saturday night.
McKimmie, who led the count from the opening round, polled 22 votes to finish five clear of Bullioh co-coach and last year's runner-up Hamish Clark.
Cudgewa's Brayden (16) and Dayne Carey (13) finished third and fourth.
The surprise of the night was Bulldog full-forward Ash Murray failing to poll 10 votes despite kicking 135 goals during the home and away series.
"I hadn't won a best and fairest before so it's a nice honour," the Corryong College school teacher said.
"I've been runner-up a few times but never won one.
"I just tried to be consistent.
"My last block of five games was probably my best."
McKimmie, 27, was voted best afield on five occasions and will now turn his attention to Saturday's preliminary final against Bullioh.
"It's going to be a big ask but we have nothing to lose," he said.
In a big night for Federal, McKimmie's girlfriend Sophie Pattison won the A grade netball best and fairest.
The talented wing attack was also successful in 2017 before she and McKimmie spent last season travelling overseas.
McKimmie polled 22 votes to finish three clear of Swan teammate Claudia McKimmie.
Federal's Christine McKimmie won the B grade from Tiarnee Hunt, Bullioh's Tania Campbell topped the C grade count, Bullioh's Karen Furze was successful in C grade and Federal's Orianne Hunt took out 15 and under.
In what could be the lowest winning total in country football, Bullioh's Ben Parker won the reserve grade football medal with just six votes.
Parker completed the double by taking out the goalkicking with 27 majors.
Corryong's David Colbert took out the Volunteer of the Year award, Tumbarumba's Bec Clarke won the Club Umpire of the Year and Bullioh was named Champion Club.
