Bay pair the top sports
TWO YOUNG school students have finished the year on top of the class – the sporting class that is.
Carly Burch and Connor Reeves have been named the big winners in the annual Hervey Bay Zone sports awards for the year.
Burch, from Star of the Sea Catholic School, is the Sportswoman of the Year while Reeves, a student at Sandy Strait State School, is the Sportsman of the Year.
The 12-year-old Burch showed her all-round sporting prowess by representing Wide Bay in hockey, aquathon, cross-country, athletics and swimming.
Reeves represented Queensland in soccer and golf.
He helped Queensland win a national team’s golf title.
