FROM five premierships, three club best and fairests and a league medal, to Heathcote District squad representation, Rindy Sawyer has a record most country netballers would envy.
But it's the privilege of being a part of such a welcoming and tight-knit club, involving so many family and friends, that the popular and well-respected White Hills player loves most about her involvement in the sport.
On Saturday, Sawyer will add to her extensive list of accolades by becoming just the club's third netballer to reach 350 games, when the Demons host fierce rival Colbinabbin at Scott Street.
She joins Lisa Argus and her sister Dannielle Sawyer, who notched up the milestone earlier in the season, on that exclusive list.
Starting as a junior, Rindy Sawyer's association with White Hills has stretched since 1999.
Her only break in play was in 2018, the year she gave birth to son Karter.
But like the no-fuss and committed club person team-mates past and present have come to look up to, Sawyer returned to the court this season, and after an initial few games in B-reserve quickly found her way into the B-grade team.
"To be part of the White Hills Football Netball Club in general is the most enjoyable thing, especially when all my family - mum and dad and all my siblings - have been able to be a part of my career," she said.
"I really couldn't think of anywhere else to play 350 games.
"I guess with the club being so successful it makes it easier to keep coming back, but in saying that there are so many hard-working people here that I have made life-long friends out of. That can be hard to find at a lot of places.
"Premierships aside, they are just a great group of girls, who make you want to come out on Saturday and Thursday night.
"Now that I have little Karter it's even better."
A bristling resume includes three club best and fairests (B-grade in 2010 and '15, and C-grade 2004), HDNA league B-grade runner-up best and fairests in 2007 and '10, a C-grade league best and fairest in 2004, and premierships in A-reserve (2005 and '06), B-grade (2010 ad '17) and C-grade (2001).
Her on-court achievements are more than matched by a proud record of service off the court, including roles as a coach of the Demons' 17-and-under, C and D-grade teams, league delegate, assistant secretary, property steward, netball committee member, social committee member and umpire.
Sawyer admitted some nervousness about stepping back out onto the court again after a season away, but those nerves were quickly dispelled as her form and consistency developed.
Renowned for her versatility - Sawyer has played every position on the court - the Demons stalwart rates the five premierships as the undoubted highlights of her career.
They might also account for her single netball regret.
"Probably the only downfall is I never got to play in one with my sister, but in saying that all the premierships standout," she said.
"Individual accolades aren't something I really strive for, but it will be something I will look back on at the end of my career and talk about with my kids and grandchildren.
"Premierships really are the ultimate success."

Further flag glory potentially awaits this season, with three of the Demons' four senior teams sitting on top of the ladder and the club's A-grade team placed second ahead of a top of the table clash against the Grasshoppers.
A-grade coach Lauren Bowles said while Sawyer was fierce in her desire to shun the limelight that accompanied such milestones, her achievements and contributions to the Hillies family could not go unrecognised.
"She deserves the limelight and to be surrounded by great people on her special occasion," she said.
"To play 350 games, not too many females would have achieved that in any sport in Bendigo and she should be extremely proud of that achievement.
"The fact that Rindy and her sister Dan have both played 350 games shows what a committed family they are for this club and what great contributors they are on and off the court.
"She took a year off last year after the birth of Karter, but you know what, she was still at every single game and down at training and hanging around the club.
"We couldn't keep her away, but it's great to have her back on the court."
The Demons will also celebrate 100-game milestones for Marnie Ross and Mikayla Gellatly this weekend.
