After captaining Wodonga's A-grade side for the last three seasons, Leah Mathey has now risen to the helm.
The newly appointed A-grade netball coach takes over from Bianca Mann, who has led the side for the past two seasons.
Mann will however remain involved at the club in a newly formed role as Head of Netball, having also recommitted as coach of the under-15s after leading them to a premiership in the grade's first year in the competition.
"She (Mann) is a mentor at the club and we'll obviously still have a lot to do with each other," Mathey said.
"She's certainly done a great job with the club in the last couple of years and I'm keen to build on the work that's been done.
"I'm really excited to take on the role with A-grade."
Mathey has previously coached in the Ballarat Football Netball League and was at the helm of Upper Murray club Federals before arriving at Wodonga three years ago.
The previous A-grade club best and fairest winner admitted she's looking forward to working with the Bulldogs' up-and-coming netballers.
