ST MARY'S ended a three-decade long premiership drought, winning Wimmera-Mallee Cricket Association's A Grade premiership on Saturday.
The Saints defeated Wycheproof-Narraport at Brim, winning outright and on first innings.
St Mary's captain Justin Knorpp said the premiership meant a lot to the club.
"It's been 30 years since the club's been in a grand final, let alone won one so everyone is pretty happy," he said.
"As I said to the fellas throughout the season, everyone contributed.
"It's been a good team effort. Everyone's been a lot more committed this season as opposed to other years and it's paid dividends, finishing on top and winning the premiership."
St Mary's made 83 in its first innings and dismissed Wycheproof-Narraport for 67 in reply, with Tim Bell taking a career-best 9-16.
The Saints posted 164 in their second innings, with Nick Germano, 69 runs, and Shannon Jess, 30, combining for a 58-run sixth wicket stand.
Wycheproof-Narraport was all out for 98 in its second innings.
Knorpp took 6-19 and Brenton Cheney 3-45.
Knorpp said Germano and Jess were instrumental in the win.
"We were able to get 180 runs ahead in the end," he said.
"Wycheproof-Narraport had 27 overs to bat and that partnership of ours no doubt set the win up."
Knorpp played down his contribution with the ball.
"I brought myself on to get a couple of cheap ones," he said.
"I made a duck with the bat so I thought I better do something."
In B Grade, Donald recorded an eight-wicket win against Jeffcott Blue in the third game of the best of three grand final series to clinch the title.

Brody Haddow was the only Jeffcott Blue batsman to show resistance, scoring an unbeaten 51.
David Letts was the best of the Donald bowlers with 3-10.
Letts and Chris Leith put on 57 for the first wicket in reply as Donald cruised to an easy win.
