LUCY McEvoy has capped another impressive season by winning her second Geelong Falcons Girls best-and-fairest.

McEvoy, who was recently named Vic Country’s best player at the under-18 National Championships and is expected to be highly sought after in this year’s AFLW draft, polled 119 votes to finish 19 clear of Paige Sheppard.

The 18-year-old won the inaugural best-and-fairest in 2017 and finished runner-up to Olivia Purcell last year.

McEvoy and Sheppard were tied on 100 votes apiece heading into the semi-final loss to Calder Cannons.

However, only the versatile McEvoy polled votes out of the pair, with Sheppard injured early in the match.

Luka Lesosky-Hay finished third in the best-and-fairest and also received the Amy’s No.30 award named in honour of inaugural Falcon Amy Gorell.

She was presented the award by 2018 Amy’s No.30 winner Sachi DeGiacomi.

Leading goal kicker Mia Skinner received the award for Most Consistent, Daisy Smith was named Most Improved, and key defender Abbey Chapman was recognised with the Trademark award.
