The Northland Age - - Age Sport -

From over 300 nom­i­na­tions, 164 in­di­vid­ual and four team fi­nal­ists have been named in the an­nual ASB North­land Sec­ondary School Sports Awards.

A to­tal of 21 North­land sec­ondary schools are rep­re­sented from Kaitaia to Wells­ford. The an­nual awards ac­knowl­edge sport­ing achieve­ments with over 35 codes rep­re­sented. The ASB Sports­man of the Year and Sportswoman of the Year will be named and ASB Team of the Year, said ASB North­land re­gional man­ager Glen Hard­ham.

“This event recog­nises the progress and ded­i­ca­tion of some of North­land’s up and com­ing ath­letes. The fi­nal­ists in these awards are the sport­ing stars of to­mor­row.”

The awards evening is in the ASB Sta­dium in Whanga¯rei on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 25. For the first time in the event’s his­tory, Sport North­land has man­aged to se­cured fund­ing in the form of do­na­tions from lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als to en­sure all fi­nal­ists re­ceive a com­pli­men­tary ticket.

Sport North­land’s Robyn Richards said this has been made pos­si­ble thanks to the gen­eros­ity of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“By work­ing to­gether, we are hop­ing to en­sure that all our fi­nal­ists can at­tend,” Sport North­land’s Robyn Richards said, adding that each fun­der will be ac­knowl­edged with a ta­ble spon­sor­ship so that those at­tend­ing will know pre­cisely who has been so gen­er­ous.
