PARKVIEW Public School student Salvatore Alampi has this year achieved a feat no other before him has.
Salvatore, who is in year six, was the first ever student from Parkview Public selected to represent the Riverina at the NSW Primary School Sports Association's boys soccer championships.
His selection followed from impressive performances for the Leeton-Narrandera PSSA side at the Riverina championships.
Unfortunately, like many other things in 2020 and 2021, his selection hasn't exactly gone to plan.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the soccer championships were originally postponed last term to be held now that school has returned again.
