At just 20-years-old, Grace Senior already has four seasons of Ovens and Murray A-grade netball experience under her belt.
Since debuting for North Albury at 15, Senior has gone on to establish herself as one of the sharpest goal shooters in the league.
She said her transition into the senior ranks was made easy under the guidance and support of her three netball idols- Hoppers' stalwarts Fiona Boyer and Paula Cary, as well as her mum, Margo.
"I was so lucky to be coached by such knowledgeable coaches," she said.
"I was coached by Fiona from the age of nine and she really helped me develop most of the netball skills I have now.
"It was challenging, but it was also rewarding in a way because I got to play against some of the best players in the league at a young age.
"I had no expectations really because I had never come up against them before."
This season was supposed to mark Senior's second with Corowa-Rutherglen after joining the Roos last year.
Instead it has become the first break from netball she's had since her playing career began, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After playing in the Roos first A-grade grand final last year, Senior admits it's a season she'll look back on fondly.
"Going to Corowa, I didn't expect to win against Wangaratta in that first round, let alone making it to the grand final," she said.
"It was a really good year and I enjoyed my netball so much.
"That's why I was looking forward to this year."
Grace wasn't the only Senior gearing up for a big season of Ovens and Murray netball, with older sister Chloe set to co-coach North Albury's A-grade side alongside Boyer.
The Senior sisters grew up throwing the netball around the backyard together, with older brother Josh also not too far away.
The sisters now face the prospect of coming up against each other on the court.
"She (Chloe) would always dominate me because she's five years older," Senior said.
"On the court, obviously I'd try my hardest to win, but off the court there's no hard feelings."
Senior also played basketball at a representative level growing up.
After deciding to pursue netball, she admits her time spent on the basketball court has also helped her become the player she is today.
"Pretty much my whole life has been spent around sport," she said.
"I think basketball definitely helped with my netball, especially having the hunger to chase down a ball.
"It went hand in hand with my netball skills."
As the wait for the O and M season continues, Senior said she's been using her spare time to study and spend time with her family.
