Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT - Jil­lian McKee

AT ONLY 19, Robert “Bob” In­gle­ton has led his bas­ket­ball side to a record-break­ing win­ning streak.

His ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion for the sport was no­ticed by his trainer Thomas Reid, who nom­i­nated him for News Lo­cal’s Ser­vice to Sport award. In­gle­ton spends all his spare time volunteering and coach­ing for the St Clair Bas­ket­ball Club, which he joined al­most 10 years ago. As coach, In­gle­ton guided the un­der-16 men’s team to a record­break­ing three sea­sons, and 50 games with only one loss.

Reid de­scribed In­gle­ton as a club favourite who pro- duced great re­sults. “Bob dis­plays wis­dom be­yond his age and is al­ways will­ing to step in and help with­out any ques­tions asked,” he said.

News Lo­cal’s Ju­nior Sports Star Awards are spon­sored by Rebel and 7 News is the of­fi­cial media part­ner. To nom­i­nate some­one, visit ju­nior­sports star.com.au or email jss@newslo­cal.com.au. En­tries close on Oc­to­ber 23.
