Temora teenager Emily Perrot has risen to the top of Group Nine leaguetag after taking out the best and fairest at the competition’s presentation at Murrumbidgee Turf Club on Saturday.
After starting off in the juniors, Perrot made the transition to the Dragons’ senior team three years ago and was surprised to be named the best player in the competition.
“I was pretty surprised actually,” Perrot said.
“I didn’t think I would win.
“There is a lot of good girls who play leaguetag around Group Nine so I thought it would be some stiff competition.
“I’m pretty honoured, it is the first time I have ever been up that high in the count so I’m pretty happy about that.”
Perrot was also the competition’s leading pointscorer while Gundagai’s Linley Jones was the top tryscorer and Brothers’ Gabby Suckling leading goalkicker.

Meanwhile, Gundagai’s Dylan Cole won the reserve grade best and fairest count, despite missing large sections of the season playing in first grade.
Albury’s Liam Wiscombe took out the Weissel Cup Medal and Kangaroos’ Tyson McLachlan was voted best in the Sullivan Cup.
