Federation University's Australian rules football team has landed a national award.
UniSport Australia has named it the nation's best university sports team.
Fed Uni is undefeated in Australian rules at national level over the past two years - winning the UniSport Nationals division one title last year.
UniSport Australia chief executive officer Mark Sinderberry visited Ballarat to present the award to FedUni coach Hayden Walters, captain Casey Egan and FedUni sport and clubs co-ordinator Jason Slater.
Walters captained the team in 2017, but took on a non-playing coachiong role last year after tearing anterior cruciate ligament in a knee.
