Corowa-Rutherglen defender Sophie Hanrahan admits 2019 will be a hard year to beat.
The back-to-back Toni Wilson Medallist and grand finalist dubbed it her most exciting season of netball to date and is looking forward to getting back out on the court in the new year.
"Looking back at the year, it's amazing to see where the netball club came from and the whole club in general," Hanrahan said.
"There was such a great vibe around.
"Unfortunately we weren't able to finish it off, so that was a bit disappointing, but it was still really good to see B-grade become premiers.
"It's been a very exciting year and will be a hard one to top, that's for sure."
But with the highs also came the lows, with Hanrahan left to watch the second half of Corowa-Rutherglen's grand final clash with Wangaratta from the sidelines after going down to an ankle injury.
The Magpies became back-to-back premiers by three goals.

"It was gut-wrenching," Hanrahan said.
"It wasn't just my ankle, it was more the fact that I couldn't be out there with the girls to play the game out and lose it with them.
"It's probably the worst feeling in the world losing a grand final and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone.
"It was heartbreaking, but everyone still got around each other as a team."
Hanrahan is predicting Wangaratta to continue their exciting form heading into the next Ovens and Murray league season, while the Roos are looking to continue building on their momentum.
"I think a lot of the girls are sticking around," Hanrahan said.
"We've had a couple of girls across the three grades head off for Uni, but hopefully we get a few more at trials.
"I think everyone's just having a well deserved break and in the new year we'll start from there.
"Kellie (Keen) is coaching again and I don't think Wang have lost anybody.
"If anything they will have some more girls coming into the team, so they'll definitely be a force."
With the past decade now in our rear view mirror, Hanrahan reflected on how much she has developed as a netballer over the past 10 seasons and where it all began.
The talented 22-year-old started out the decade as a junior with Hume league club CDHBU before making the switch to Corowa-Rutherglen to join the Ovens and Murray league.
"I think I won a grand final at the start of the decade and then finished off this year losing one," Hanrahan said.
"It's been a big year."
