Meet Perth’s good sports
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.
Carramar table tennis star Holly Nicolas not only claimed the north region award for top Junior Sports Star Individual, she was named overall WA winner and took home the $1000 prize.
Marangaroo footballer Mikella Johnson received the Young Sporting Spirit award for north region.
Awards were presented by Toni Farnworth, from the Perth Lynx, and Hockeyroo Aleisha Power, who also chatted to winners after the ceremony, posed for photographs and signed autographs.
