Sophie wins state award

 Sophie Trevan has won a very prestigious award at the Queensland State Little Athletics Championships held in Townsville. Sophie won the George Harvey Leadership Award which is awarded to an athlete in the 15 – 17-year-age group each year at the State Championships. The award acknowledges athletes who have shown leadership qualities in inspiring and helping younger athletes gain passion and skills in their local club. They also need to show respect and perseverance and be a fantastic ambassador for Little Athletics.
