TWO of the shire's most promising young sportspeople have another accolade to add to their respective growing trophy cabinets.
Leeton shire's sportsperson of the year awards were held in conjunction with Tuesday's official Australia Day ceremony at the Roxy Theatre.
Charlie Lamont beat out Tamika Rourke to take home the junior sportsperson of the year title while Harry Rudd was named the senior sportsperson of the year.
Both have many years remaining in their burgeoning sporting careers, with the Leeton sportsperson honours likely to be among a long list of many more awards to come in the future.
Charlie, a student at Leeton High School, received the junior title after her achievements on the cricket and soccer field throughout 2020 and in the years prior.
A talented player with the bat out in the middle, Charlie has been selected in myriad representative sides and continues to catch the attention of those higher up as she consistently performs well.
She hopes one day to be able to play the sport professionally.
However, Charlie's talents also extend to the soccer pitch where she is renowned for her golden boot.
Harry meanwhile also had a huge 2020 and has recently moved to the big smoke where he is trialling with National Rugby League Club the Wests Tigers.
Harry is also no stranger to representative football sides and has come through the ranks of Leeton rugby league from juniors to seniors.
"I'd like to thank my mum, dad and my family for what they have done for me over the years," he said.
"I can't wait to get back to this community (in the coming years) to give back, I love being part of Leeton."
Leeton United Football Club first grade co-captain Jarrod Sillis was the other nominee for the senior sportsperson of the year title.
