Adlington wins best and fairest 

Three Wimmera Football League and Wimmera Netball Association clubs recognised their standout performers in 2012 on Friday night.

Former SANFL on-baller Paul Adlington won the Horsham Demons' senior best and fairest award.

Adlington, who played 19 games for the Demons this season, finished first ahead of five-time premiership winning player Brad Hartigan.

Nick Pekin, who won the Binns Medal for best-on-ground in the grand final, was third.

Netballer Steph Thomson added Horsham's A Grade best and fairest to her already impressive season.

Thomson edged out co-coach Zoe Heard to win her second medal in as many weeks after being named best-on-court in the Demons' A Grade grand final win over Ararat.

Last year's Toohey Medallist Steve Schultz took out Warrack Eagles' top football honour.

Schultz beat utility Peter Weir in the Eagles' best and fairest count.Player-coach Sarah Koschitzke was announced as Warrack's A Grade netball best and fairest.

It was an impressive season for Koschitzke, who also coached the 15 and under A and B sides to premierships. Goal attack Megan Hewitt was runner-up.

Horsham Saints utility Phil Butsch added a best and fairest trophy to his Toohey Medal.

Butsch, who returned to the football field after a serious illness, beat ruckman Michael Rowe.

Jessica Cannane was named the Saints' best A Grade netballer, winning the award from Maddy Ticchi.

Horsham RSL Diggers and Stawell will have their counts on Saturday night, while Ararat's will be on October 13.
