North Melbourne star Jasmine Garner has compiled another award-winning season, polling 76 votes to be crowned Coaches Association Champion Player of the Year in the seventh edition of the AFLW competition.

The 28-year-old edged out Richmond star Monique Conti and young gun Georgie Prespakis who both tied for second with 67 votes, whilst the older sister of the latter, Maddy Prespakis, was next in line with 63 votes.

One of the AFLW's brightest sparks, Garner has become a household name in the competition, working in the engine room for her Kangaroos and providing teammates with first use on a consistent basis.

AFL Coaches Association CEO Alistair Nicholson congratulated the efforts of Garner throughout the year, with her talent recognised for the second time since 2020 after being awarded with the AFLW Champion Player of the Year Award for Season 7.

“Jasmine has performed to an incredibly high level this season to win her second AFL Coaches Association AFLW Champion Player of the Year Award. To poll five perfect scores and votes in all but one match during the season is an amazing effort off the back of a short lead-up to Season 7,” Nicholson said.

“The coaches have a unique perspective on what succeeds in each of the games which combined with the thought that goes into allocating the votes makes this one of the most prestigious of all the individual awards. Jasmine should be very proud to receive this award from the coaches.”

Darren Crocker, head coach of the Kangaroos, also chimed in to give kudos to Garner, commenting on the fortunate position he is in to watch her blossom right beneath his eyes.

“Jas is a unique player and as importantly a terrific person, she is such a deserving winner of the coaches award following an outstanding season,” Crocker said.

“We are all lucky to see at close quarters the way she goes about her football and her love for our club.”

The midfielder will have Saturday night's quarter-final berth front of mind hoping to gain the upper hand over Geelong, with Garner potentially going toe-to-toe with equal runner-up Georgie Prespakis.
