A new coach and fresh look has proven just as effective for Billabong Crows this season as they prepare for another Hume league netball grand final.
The reigning premiers have made the most of the club's young talent this year, as well as the guidance of first time coach Holly Dowling.
The Ovens and Murray and Hume league premiership player said the Crows are feeling on top of the world as they wait to meet with Jindera or Brock-Burrum in the flag decider.
After coach Beck O'Connell's departure from the club, Dowling said she didn't feel any pressure taking over the position.
"I was really happy to step into the role," Dowling said.
"We're a fresh new team, so we weren't really feeling any pressure.
"A grand final is always what we're all aiming for.

"As a player, that's what I always aimed for and it's the same as a coach."
Star 16-year-old goal attack Bethany Moloney has had a breakout season for the Crows, while young guns Megan Smith and Maddy Tuba have also made an impact since stepping up into the side.
Moloney was named best on court in the Crows' semi-final victory against Jindera on the weekend, and Dowling believes it's just the start of good things to come for the talented teen.
"For a 16-year-old, she's taking on some of the league's best players and is dominating," Dowling said.
"I definitely think she's one to look out for in the future.
"Maddy and Megan have come into the team and they fill the role of players that have left really well."
After finishing the season minor premiers, it took just one win for the Crows to book a grand final berth.
Dowling admits the week off worked in their favour.
"We were so glad to have had that week off to rest and rejuvenate," Dowling said.
"All of the teams that were in finals this season were strong.
"It really could have been anyone."
