The junior firefighters competed on Saturday in Kerang where the brigade had a fantastic day and posted strong times throughout.
In total the brigade snared 14 medals, two of which were gold and four silver.
More points were put on the board from a further two third-place finishes, two fourths and a fifth placing.
Brothers in arms out on the course, Calvin and Daniel Barkby, combined to snag high place finishes as they went on to win the two-person Marshall event against 12 other teams.
