Pocket rocket wins big
SHE may be small in stature and not one for words but Chloe Burt just loves her sport.
Winner of the Biggenden Junior Sports Award, Chloe has represented her district in cross country and the North Burnett in soccer and rugby league.
She has also represented Maryborough in hockey and will be lining up this weekend at Kawana after gaining selection in the Hervey Bay/Fraser Coast Oz Tag team.
Her nominee said Chloe was an inspirational role model for her community.
“She has shown that no matter how small you are, or whether you are male or female, you can achieve anything, if you are willing to put in the effort.
“Chloe is very encouraging of others in all of her sporting teams and those within her school and community.”
After accepting her award from Cr Lofty Wendt, she was placed on a chair in front of the microphone to say two words of “thank you”.
In the coming weeks the family will be moving to Maryborough as dad Simon is now teaching at Maryborough High.
Asked what sport she would play this year Chloe said “all of them, plus gymnastics”.
WELL DONE: Junior Sports Award winner at Biggenden, Chloe Burt.
