Maddi Lloyd has received her first A-grade best and fairest award with Lavington.
This season's Toni Wilson Medallist edged out defender Sarah Meredith by two votes to take home the honour at the club's presentation night on Friday.
The humble midcourt player said she's been surprised by the recognition she's received this season.
"I didn't actually see my season as that amazing to be honest, but it's quite nice to be awarded these sorts of things," she said.
Lloyd joined the Panthers in 2017.
She began her Ovens and Murray netball career with North Albury before relocating to the Gold Coast for university, where she continued to play.
"It was very different and it was hard to feel that club morale that you get down here," she said.
"Nothing really beats country footy and netball."
Lloyd will now be using her years of experience to guide the club's next generation as she takes to the helm of the under-17s alongside A-grade teammate Steph Clancy.
"I think we complement each other quite well," she said.
"I never thought coaching was a path that I would go down.
"But Steph and I did a few clinics throughout this year and we both really loved sharing our knowledge.
"We have some good young potential players there which is really exciting to see."

Lavington has also appointed a new A-grade coach, with Linda Robinson stepping up into the role after assisting the team this season.
"She (Robinson) really gets across to the players with her knowledge and the way she communicates," Lloyd said.
"This season she worked a lot with Maddy Plunkett and we saw her development throughout the year, which was great to see.
"We're really looking forward to having her work more with us."
Plunkett was named most improved after her season in goals, while the A-grade coaches award went to Emma Merkel.
