Lo­cal sports stars an­nounced

Midland Reporter - - Front Page -

THE 2017 search for Western Aus­tralia’s bright­est sport­ing tal­ent – and the par­ents, coaches, of­fi­cials and vol­un­teers who make it all pos­si­ble – has wrapped with an in­cred­i­ble list of win­ners.

Held at Com­mu­nity News’ head of­fice in the City last Wed­nes­day, the 2017 Lo­cal Sports Star awards high­lighted the ex­cep­tional ath­letes within our sport­ing com­mu­nity, from those mak­ing their name at a state, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional level to oth­ers who make their club tick.

The Vines res­i­dent Luke Cotel­lessa – the boy be­hind Luke’s Boots for the Out­back – won the Young Sport­ing Spirit award for the Hills/East re­gion and his out­stand­ing gen­eros­ity also led to him re­ceiv­ing the over­all WA award. Hen­ley Brook’s Nikita Mawhirt was named the re­gion’s in­di­vid­ual Ju­nior Sports Star for her out­stand­ing prom­ise in the sport of mod­ern pen­tathlon.

The State’s top Ju­nior Sports Star Team was won by Ned­lands girls 7s rugby, Mandurah Storm Rugby League Club’s un­der-16s was pre­sented the team award for Young Sport­ing Spirit and net­ball stal­wart Keryn Rae was recog­nised for her tire­less vol­un­teer­ing with the Ser­vice to Sport hon­our.

Awards were pre­sented by Toni Farn­worth from the Perth Lynx and Hock­ey­roo Aleisha Power.
