Mitta coach Gabrielle Gray took to the court for her first A-grade game in eight years on Saturday.
The wing-attack's return helped Mitta United to a convincing 51-20 win against Wodonga Saints at Eskdale.
Mitta defenders Ava Kennett and Isabel Grundy starred for the home side.
At just 17, Gray admitted Kennett is a young player to keep an eye on.
"She's super exciting to watch," Gray said.
"Every week she strives to exceed any expectations in the tasks she's been given on the court."
