STAWELL - Jarred Ohayon topped off a stellar year for Crush Fitness Stawell Wildcats, taking home the most valuable player award at the club's presentation night.
Ohayon, 19, created his own slice of history after being crowned MVP at two different clubs in both of their inaugural Country Basketball League seasons under the same coach.
It follows his 2012 most valuable player win under current Stawell coach Trevor Holmes, when the pair were at Horsham-based team CBL Hornets.
Ohayon finished the season with 21 votes from 13 games to receive top honours.
Runner up was Joel Freeland on 16 and Zac Salmi rounded out the top three, polling 11 votes.
Ohayon also secured the most points award, totalling 188 at an average of 14.5.
Freeland scored 103 at 8.6 from 12 games while Salmi accumulated 78 from 11 games with an average of 8.6.
Salmi was crowned Stawell's best first year player, while Dean Mannington collected the clubman award.
Mathew Bourke received the coaches award and James Hallett was named best defender.
Coach Trevor Holmes addressed the crowd that gathered at the Magdala Motor Lodge, congratulating all involved with their first season of CBL and praised the support from the sponsors and community of Stawell.
"Without this backing, it would have been a struggle to have the team compete," Holmes said.
"We have not tasted success on the court as yet but the benefits of fielding a CBL team can be seen around the club."
Holmes highlighted the possible inclusion of a lady Wildcat team next CBL season and the formation of an under 18 boys team and an under 14 boys team to represent Stawell at local tournaments.
The under 14 boys travelled to Colac to compete in the Colac Bulla Dairy Foods Tournament and pitted themselves against Ararat, Warrnambool, Terang and Swan Hill.
The Holmes coached team have been training together since late December and are looking to get on court at their first tournament as Stawell Wildcats.
The under 18 side's first outing will be in Bendigo on March 16-17 at the state divisional championships.
