Maggie Caris.

Wimmera footballers Maggie Caris, Ella Wood and Nekaela Butler each came away with trophies at a Greater Western Victoria Rebels best and fairest count at the weekend.
The talented trio was rewarded for outstanding individual seasons, with Caris named the representative team’s most valuable player.
Wood finished runner-up in the best and fairest count and Butler was third.
The best and fairest award went to Ballarat’s Sophie Molan.
Caris is one of two Wimmera footballers currently competing at the AFLW Under-18 Championships.
Caris and Stawell’s Isabella Simmonds were both picked for the Victoria Country team, which lost its first match of the championships 10.10 (70) to 4.2 (26) against Victoria Metro at Avalon Airport Oval at the weekend.
Caris was named among Victoria Country’s best players, collecting 10 disposals and 18 hitouts.
Caris is following in the footsteps of older sister Rene, who also played for the Rebels before being selected by Geelong with the 35th pick in last year’s AFLW draft.
Horsham Saints’ Ella Friend was also in action in the AFLW Under-16 Championships for Victoria Country at the weekend, contributing to a 6.8 (44) to 4.6 (30) win against Victoria Metro.
