Congratulations to Year 10 students Elly and Tom who both received a Leader Sports Star Award in a ceremony held at Etihad Stadium Medallion Club on Tuesday night.
Tom won the 2017 Darebin Junior Sports Star Award for his achievements in gymnastics, while Elly won the 2017 Heidelberg Young Sporting Spirit Individual Award for her successes in volleyball.
The award night was hosted by Stephen Quartermain and included some inspiring speeches from tennis champion Todd Woodbridge, aerial skier Lydia Lassila and Olympic bronze medallist diver Annabelle Smith. Tom was lucky to have a chance to talk with them all after the ceremony.
The Leader Sports Awards have a history of acknowledging our future Olympians and professional sporting stars. Both students must be thrilled for the acknowledgement of their hard work, passion and dedication to their sport. What a great way to end the year for both young athletes.
