MYRTLEFORD'S resurgence as an Ovens and Murray club has gained further momentum with Tina Way signing as A grade netball coach.
Way (nee Corcoran) returned to the Border from the Northern Territory late last year after taking out Darwin Netball Association Premier League best and fairests in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
She won Barnawartha's best and fairest this year and finished two votes behind Rutherglen star Emily Browne in the Tallangatta and District league count.
The appointment comes within weeks of Myrtleford making the senior football preliminary final against eventual premier Lavington and the Alpine Saints winning the under-18 premiership.
Way, who lasted played Ovens and Murray netball for Wodonga Raiders in 2005, said she was looking forward to the challenge.
"Myrtleford approached me last year but we were busy travelling around Australia in a caravan at the time and I didn't know where we would be," Way said.
"It's worked out well now.
"I enjoy the challenges of coaching and the team unity and am looking forward to it."
