Hunt on for top peo­ple in sport

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

The hunt to find South Waikato’s top sports­peo­ple and of­fi­cials is on for just one more week.

Sport Waikato district co-or­di­na­tor Heather Ry­don said these awards pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity to ac­knowl­edge and cel­e­brate sport­ing suc­cess but, for this to hap­pen, peo­ple needed to take the time to make a nom­i­na­tion.

‘‘We want to shine the spot­light on our sport­ing stars and the peo­ple who ded­i­cate their time to mak­ing sport pos­si­ble in our district,’’ said Ms Ry­don.

‘‘So we need our clubs, schools and re­gional sport­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to take the time to fill out the nom­i­na­tion forms be­cause, un­less this hap­pens, their ef­forts could go un­no­ticed.’’

Nom­i­na­tions close on Oc­to­ber 18. Cat­e­gories are: Club of the Year, Ref­eree/um­pire of the year, Ad­min­is­tra­tor of the year, Coach of the year, 40+ Sportsper­son of the year, Team of the year, Ju­nior sportsper­son of the year, Sportsper­son of the year, Ser­vice to sport. Nom­i­nees will be judged on achieve­ments from Novem­ber 1, 2009 to Oc­to­ber 31 2010.

Win­ners will be an­nounced at the South Waikato sports awards evenings held on Novem­ber 17 at te Wananga o Aotearoa Con­fer­ence Cen­tre in Toko­roa. Tick­ets for this event will be on sale closer to the time and Ms Ry­don said this was al­ways a great night out.

‘‘This evening is a real high­light on the sport­ing cal­en­dar,’’ said Ms Ry­don. ‘‘And I’d love to see the com­mu­nity sup­port our sports­peo­ple.’’
