Corowa-Rutherglen's Sophie Hanrahan became just the second Ovens and Murray netballer to win back-to-back Toni Wilson Medals on Monday night.
The Roos star joins Ovens and Murray Hall of Famer Lindy Singleton (Gunson) who claimed the award in 1996 and 1995, sharing the honour alongside Wangaratta Rovers' Kathryn Bourke.
Hanrahan polled 31 votes to edge out Wangaratta defender Hannah Grady (26) and Lavington centre Maddi Lloyd (20), with the top two vote pullers still eyeing off the premiership this season.
The Ovens and Murray representative player has proven just how valuable her versatility is.
Hanrahan polled heavily last year for her role as a shooter before switching to the other end.
However, this season she has served the Roos dominantly in goal defence, with the arrival of star goal shooter Grace Senior at the club this season.
21-year-old Hanrahan said she was extremely overwhelmed with receiving the award for the second year in a row.
"I feel a bit silly," Hanrahan said.
"I think there's some other girls who should have been up there before me, but I feel very honoured.

"I think what's made it easier this year is the team we've had, we're all just like best friends and get along so well.
"Even when we lost that one game we all still got behind each other."
Hanrahan and Grady both polled votes in 12 of 18 games, but the Roos' defender's ability to poll consecutive threes proved the difference in the end.
Lloyd polled in seven of the Panthers games this season.
It is set to continue to be a big week for Hanrahan who will line-up in Corowa-Rutherglen's first A-grade netball grand final in the history of the club this weekend.
The Roos take on reigning premiers Wangaratta at Norm Minns Oval on Sunday, while the club's B and C grades will also line-up in grand finals.
Hanrahan said while she had a few lingering nerves for the game, she's also focused on helping get the other grades over the line.
"I coach C-grade, so I'm feeling more nervous for that than actually playing in my game," Hanrahan said.
"Obviously I'd love to win, but to have three grades in a grand final is something that we're very proud of.
"We'll lap up all of the excitement that comes with it while it's here.
"When our grades started winning those games we had women who were there when Corowa were losing by 50 goals who were crying.
"That made us think this is so worth it, let's keep going.
"I think it's going to be a good game regardless."
Hanrahan and Beck O'Connell (Didier) are the only players from Corowa-Rutherglen to take out the Toni Wilson medal.
